Make A Difference Day

 

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”

Mohandas “Mahatma” Gandhi

 

Make A Difference Day is upon us. What will you do to make a difference in your community?

Oct 23rd marks the 20th anniversary of Make A Difference Day, the largest day of community service. Founded by USA WEEKEND and partnered with HandsOn Network, this national day of doing good motivated 3 million people last year to actively participate in the betterment of their communities. We’re excited to increase participation numbers this year!

In case you are unsure of ways to get involved, below is a list of projects happening right here in your own back yards. You may sign up for any of these giving back opportunities via the HandsOn Twin Cities website, or be inspired to create your own Make A Difference Day Project!
