Make a Difference Day
Make a Difference Day is a national day of service.
Every year on the 4th Saturday of October, Volunteer McKinney organizes dozens of volunteer projects across McKinney for community members, families, clubs and teams to participate in. Join hundreds of people with giving hearts as you make a difference in McKinney helping many great nonprofit organizations.
Volunteers can sign up as an individual or team and spend the morning MAKING A DIFFERENCE!
After you volunteer, you are encouraged to eat at one of the local restaurant hosts participating in Make a Difference Day. You will receive a free t-shirt for volunteering. Wear your Volunteer McKinney t-shirt to their restaurant and you will receive a discount off your meal!
