LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Some Louisville firefighters are pitching in this week for the Mayor's Give A Day.

Tuesday, a group spent a second day at St. Peter's United Church of Christ near Beecher Terrace on 12th Street in Louisville.

"Last year, we did an access ramp for the handicapped at the church," said Captain Chris Verdi. "This year, we're doing the quiet room for the kids in the church. It's a neighbor. We're part of the community and they are as well so we're partners."

Louisville Fire Captain Sal Melendez said a second group was working to paint a mural at City Life in Louisville's West End. Melendez said some of the firefighters volunteered their time and came in off-duty.

The supplies for the church project were all donated by Home Depot.
