When: The fourth Saturday in October
This year it is October 27th.
The national day began in 1990 and was initiated to help others by doing volunteer work in the community. The activity can be almost anything. Millions of Americans participate in community improvement projects. It takes the form of cleanup, fix up, painting, and repair in poorer neighborhoods, parks and municipal facilities. It doesn’t matter what project it might be. It doesn’t matter whether you help a non-profit organization, the community, your town, nursing home, a church, a food kitchen, or any other group in need. What matters is that you participate.
Make a commitment to help others for just one day. Make a difference on Make a Difference Day!
Did You Know? Each year on Make a Difference Day, ex-President Jimmie Carter gets out his hammer and saw ,and helps to build or rebuild housing in underprivileged areas.
Steve Alt, Raine Inc.’s Operation Manager, leads a team of his friends who serve a meal to the community through a local church. They are 1 of 11 teams that do this every 11 weeks and serve over 160 meals a week. In all, they have been able to serve over 50,000 meals since October 2004. “This just one way my family can pay forward for all of the blessing we are given,” says Steve.
Raine would love to hear how you are able to help someone or organization in your community. It just takes one person to lend a hand. Invite your kids, friends or family to get involved!
