LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – General Electric employees worked on projects for a local non-profit that helps the poor and homeless in our community on Friday.

From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., around 140 GE employees helped with improvement projects like refinishing the floors of St. Vincent de Paul's soup kitchen. The soup kitchen is located in a historic, former church sanctuary, where St. Vincent de Paul now cooks and serves free meals to hundreds of people each day.

"It makes you feel good. It's a just a way to really ground yourself in your surroundings and really feel fortunate for where you're at in life and some of the things you're able to give back," said GE employee Michelle Schneidtmiller. "It's a humbling way to give back to those less fortunate."

Other projects GE employees tacked included landscaping and installing indoor sports-court flooring.
