Make A Difference Day

(Flickr)

It’s always on the fourth Saturday in October – it’s Make A Difference Day.

It began in 1990 as a national day devoted to helping others by doing volunteer work in the community. It can be almost anything. It takes the form of cleanups, fixups, painting and repairs in poorer neighborhoods, parks and public buildings and properties.

It doesn’t matter what project you take on. It doesn’t matter whether you help a non-profit organization, the community, your town, a nursing home, a church, a food kitchen or any other group in need. And it doesn’t matter how old you are, where you live or what your resources are. What matters is that you participate. And millions do each year. Even former President Jimmy Carter gets involved each year, getting out his hammer and saw to help build or rebuild homes in underprivileged areas.

Locally, there’s a website that’ll give you a list of projects they need volunteers for – from as simple as delivering food to making a pie. And they especially need volunteers as Thanksgiving approaches.  If you want to help, you can go to this link volunteerwny.org.
