Saturday, Oct. 27 is “Make a Difference Day”

Make a Difference DayMake a Difference Day is the country’s biggest community service event, mobilizing millions of people from all walks of life to join together to make make a positive contribution.

The brainchild of popular magazine USA Weekend, the event falls on the fourth Saturday of every October. Individuals, volunteer groups, churches, charities, business owners, and civic leaders can submit their projects to inspire others.

Follow these stories on Facebook, YouTube, and the program’s website for ideas on making your own difference this weekend!

Remember, it doesn’t take much to uplift someone. A simple smile can change someone’s world. Try “paying it forward” at the coffee shop; lending a helping hand to an elderly neighbor; or giving a small donation or a few volunteer hours to a local charity. Small acts of caring carry enormous value for the little time and effort they take!
