Coming together to make a difference is a great way to not only improve your community, but deepen ties to your neighbors and have fun working together to do good! Join tens of thousands of volunteers across the country on Saturday, Oct. 28, to unite with common mission – to improve the lives of others through community-driven service projects.
Make a Difference Day
Volunteers across the country come together each October for Make A Difference Day, united with a common mission to improve the lives of others through service projects. And each year, TEGNA recognizes 14 outstanding project leaders, awarding $140,000 in grants that are donated to the charities related to the winning projects. As we prepare for Make A Difference Day 2017, Points of Light is recognizing these extraordinary difference makers with Daily Point of Light Awards.
Millions of volunteers unite in service each October for Make a Difference Day, participating in a variety of projects to make a meaningful impact on their communities. This week, volunteers with 13 nonprofits and community groups – selected from thousands of entrants – will be honored for their outstanding 2015 Make a Difference Day projects.
