Make a Difference Day – The Largest Day of Service
Annually, on the fourth Saturday of October, millions of volunteers come together to make a difference in their communities. Make a Difference Day is a celebration of neighbors helping neighbors and individuals coming together to improve the lives of others. On this national day of service, anyone, regardless of age or resources, can make a difference through large organized volunteer events or simply by raking a neighbor’s yard. Make A Difference Day truly celebrates volunteers and the spirit of giving back through impact on both small and large scales.
We invite YOU to join HandsOn Twin Cities in service on Make A Difference Day, October 25th, 2014.
Join us for a family friendly volunteer project at North Mississippi Regional Park, which offers spectacular views of the Mississippi River and the surrounding woods and prairie. Here you will find abundant wildlife in action: a Great Blue Heron nesting on an island, deer foraging, a beaver felling trees, hawks and eagles soaring overhead. In summer, the prairie flowers provide ever-changing color. Volunteers will have the opportunity to collect native prairie seeds, build pollinators to help bring back the bee population and remove invasive buckthorn from the area. All of these efforts will help maintain and improve the natural habitat along the river.
This event is open to ALL so please bring your family, friends, fellow volunteers and anyone else who might be interested in spending the morning along the shores of the Mississippi River!
If you have a question about the project please contact Meghan Morse at firstname.lastname@example.org
We’ll see you there!
