A national day of service with a local impact!
Volunteers from across the country, including right here in Green Bay, united for Make A Difference Day (October 26, 2019), 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 and strengthen their communities.
The Volunteer Center of Brown County coordinated the local Make A Difference Day efforts, which partnered more than 300 volunteers with over 75 senior and disabled homeowners in our community who needed help raking leaves, washing windows and completing minor maintenance projects. Corporate teams, church groups, students, and individuals tackled projects throughout the week leading up to Saturday, as well as on the day itself.
A kickoff event was held that morning at the Volunteer Center where community members enjoyed snacks and coffee, met other volunteers, and got motivated for a great day of service!
Thank you to our 2019 sponsors!
