Make a Difference Day

The fourth Saturday of October is celebrated across the country as Make a Difference Day. Since 1998, we’ve been helping volunteers and communities to come out for this event. The single purpose: to improve the lives of others.

Volunteer McKinney coordinates Make a Difference Day for McKinney, and we have had over 500 volunteers working at various projects across the city on that one day.
