No matter who you are or where you live, you can make a difference!  Make A Difference Day is held on the fourth Saturday in October and is one of the largest annual single-days of service nationwide.  The single mission of Make A Difference Day is to improve the lives of others through volunteering. Whether it’s sharing a small act of kindness that helps one person, or working on a group project that benefits a whole community, every contribution makes a difference.  Here are just a few ideas to get your gears turning for individual contributions:  collect your used books and donate to the local library, collaborate with a local non profit on a project they need, deliver pumpkins, fall decor or dessert to local fire or police station, engage your workplace in a food collection, write a letter or have your kids draw a picture to send to service personnel, drop off a bag of food at local animal shelter, commit to ditching the plastic and using reusable water bottles, rake leaves or pull weeds for an elderly neighbor, write a personal thank you card and etc!
