A Message from the Coalition for the Homeless: Some People Have No Home During the Holidays Wednesday, Dec 13 2017 

The Coalition for the Homeless has identified 10 ways to show compassion
during this holiday season

Louisville, KY (November 21, 2017) – This holiday season is a time for members in the community to start thinking about what they are thankful for, to share their compassion with neighbors who are experiencing homelessness, and to work toward a world where no one has to experience hunger and/or homelessness. In fact, for most of us, the holidays bring happy memories, wonderful traditions, indulgent warm meals, and much-needed time spent with family and loved ones. But for some Louisvillians, these things are luxuries, not realities. The Coalition for the Homeless has identified a few ways in which members of our community can help those who are less fortunate:

1. Join the Coalition for the Homeless’ “Five Bucks A Month Club” to get one person off of the streets and into shelter for one night each month during extreme weather. This helps fund the city’s White Flag Program, which provides funding to local shelters to open their doors and make space for everyone during the coldest winter nights. Go to http://www.louhomeless.org and click “Make a Gift.”

2. Attend the 7th Annual Give-A-Jam to End Homelessness on Thursday, December 21 at the Clifton Center and enjoy an evening of amazing live music and local food while supporting a great cause. Admission is $25 in advance and $30 at the door, and includes 10 food/drink tickets. All proceeds will benefit the Coalition’s efforts to end youth homelessness.

3. Want to volunteer your time or plan a compassionate team building experience for staff or friends? Contact Metro United Way to find out what volunteer opportunities are available around the city. Call (502) 583-2821 to see how you can help.

4. Host a hygiene product drive amongst your friends or co-workers and collect things like lotion, deodorant, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, toothbrushes, chap stick and other personal care products to donate to a local shelter.

5. Volunteer to join a local group like The Forgotten Louisville to hand out sandwiches and help the homeless. For details see their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/The-Forgotten-Louisville-240726189464726/

6. An unfortunate side effect of all the holiday parties is food waste. Instead of throwing away leftover food after a holiday gathering, call Kentucky Harvest at (502) 894-9999 and schedule a pick-up of the left-over perishable and non-perishable food. The donated food is then delivered to more than 120 missions, shelters and food pantries.

7. Advocate for more affordable housing through more community investment in the Louisville Affordable Housing Trust Fund.

8. Donate gifts to local homeless youth and home goods for newly-housed young people through YMCA Safe Place Services. Contact Ariel Brooks at (502) 381-0140 for more information.

9. The Center for Women and Families accepts donations of used cell phones, so that their clients always have a way to make a call in an unsafe situation. They can be dropped off at any of their locations. For more information call (502) 581-7200.
10. You can also help from the comfort of your home by joining the conversation on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Linked In and educating your networks on what causes you care about. Use the hashtag #TakeAStandLou to join the Coalition’s conversation about how you’ll take a stand for the homeless this holiday season.

Finally, it is always great to get the community’s support during the holidays, but your gifts are needed all year and many service providers especially struggle to meet the needs of our community during the summer and other times of the year. So, while you are acting compassionately this holiday season, mark your calendars for six months from now and try another one of these ideas then.

D9 Community Conversation – Tuesday, January 17 – Focuses on Trees Monday, Jan 16 2017 

d9-comm-conversationThe first D9 Community Conversation of 2017 focuses on trees and, specifically, the Public Tree Ordinance which I have co-sponsored and which will soon be considered by Metro Council. Councilwoman Cheri Bryant Hamilton is the other co-sponsor.  The full ordinance is here. Two Courier-Journal articles about the proposed ordinance are here and here. If you cannot attend the Community Conversation next week,  let us know what you think at Bill Hollander.

Louisville Metro Urban Forester, Erin Thompson, will be present at Tuesday’s D9 meeting, along with Cindi Sullivan of TreesLouisville and Jessica Pendergrass of Louisville Grows. Sullivan and Pendergrass will be discussing the significant tree-planting efforts of the non-profit organizations they lead.

As with all D9 Community Conversations, discussion of any other subjects is welcome and I will be available to talk with constituents about any questions, comments or concerns.  Mark your calendar – and bring along a friend or neighbor. The D9 Community Conversation will begin at 6:30 p.m. United Crescent Hill Ministries is located at 150 S. State Street in Clifton.

Olde Tyme Christmas – Saturday, Dec. 3 Thursday, Dec 1 2016

It’s the time of year when Frankfort Avenue rings in the holidays with the 21st Annual Olde Tyme Christmas on Saturday, December 3.  The festivities kickoff at 9:00 a.m. and continue until 8:00 p.m.

“Saturday is shaping up to be a beautiful day to kick off the holiday season, with a sprint, a stroll, a walk with your dog or a visit with Santa,” says Councilman Bill Hollander (D-9).  “It’s a great way to support the important work of United Crescent Hill Ministries who help those in need at this time of year, while also supporting our local businesses.”

The day begins with the annual Santa Sprint & Stroll, a merry 5k Run or 1-Mile Walk presented by the Frankfort Avenue Business Association, to benefit the United Crescent Hill Ministries.  Registration begins at 8:00 a.m. at Barret Traditional Middle School, 2561 Grinstead Drive.

The run and walk starts at 9:00 a.m. and travels a flat course on South Peterson Avenue, South Galt Avenue and Frankfort Avenue before ending back at the school, where refreshments will be served. Photos with Santa will begin at 8:30 a.m. Bring your camera.

The following streets will closed from 8:30 am – 10:30 am, with no parking from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.:

Street Closures from 8:30 am – 10:30 am

  • South Peterson Avenue from Frankfort Avenue to Grinstead Drive
  • Frankfort Avenue from Stilz Avenue to the railroad tracks
  • South Galt Avenue from Frankfort Avenue to Rowland Avenue

No Parking from 7:00 am – 11 am

  • Frankfort Avenue from Stilz Avenue to the Railroad Tracks
  • South Peterson Avenue from Frankfort Avenue to Grinstead Drive
  • South Galt Avenue from Frankfort Avenue to Rowland Avenue

At 11:00 a.m. dogs take over the Avenue with the annual Holiday Dog Walk.  Registration and a costume contest begin at 11:00 a.m. at 2005 Frankfort Avenue, in front of the locally owned Barkstown Road at Frankfur Avenue. The walk will start at Noon and will go to the Pet Wants on The Avenue, 1718 Frankfort Avenue, where Santa Paws will be waiting to take pictures with pets from Noon – 3:00 p.m.

Free trolleys run throughout the Avenue from Noon to 5:00 p.m. and free horse carriage rides are from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.  Carriages rides will be available at two pickup locations: parking lot of The Manhattan Project (behind Nancy’s Bagels) and at Walgreens (corner of Ewing and Frankfort). The Manhattan Project will be offering drink and food specials for those waiting for carriages. Many shops and restaurants all over The Avenue will have holiday specials and churches have craft and gift shows and bazaars.

In the early afternoon, the focus shifts to the Avenue in front of Margaret’s Consignments, 2700 Frankfort Avenue.  Councilman Hollander will present the Frankfort Avenue Business Association’s Golden Antler and Good Neighbor Awards at 2:00 p.m., recognizing the Avenue’s best-decorated shops and some outstanding area neighbors.

“Come out and join the fun, and Happy Holidays,” says Hollander.
