Make A Difference Day 2017

Posted by Jessica on October 28, 2017 at 6:05 PM

Make A Difference Day is one of my favorite days of the year. Volunteers from across the country unite to make today, one of the largest annual single-days of service nationwide. Since 1992, volunteers and communities have come together on Make A Difference Day with a single purpose: to improve the lives of others. Make A Difference Day is made possible by you and the people of TEGNA with support from Arby’s Foundation and Points of Light.

This year for Make A Difference Day I decided to make a difference by delivering bags of stuffed animals instead of having a big bagging event, and although it was smaller than in the years past, I was so happy to have Mr. Tom volunteer, with his help We Care Bears was able to deliver 350 bears to first responders today alone!!!

Make A Difference Day is always the fourth Saturday in October. I want to encourage everyone to get out and make a difference every day, and next October I hope you’ll find a local project, maybe even mine, to join on Make A Difference Day.
