25th ANNUAL MAKE A DIFFERENCE DAY
Make a Difference Day is for everyone!
Each year, hundreds of volunteers ranging from children to college students to adults, come together to complete more than 100 projects. In one day, a wide range of projects are completed throughout Western Crawford County including leaf raking, wheel chair ramp building, painting, general clean-up, and much more!
The Make a Difference Day (MADD) Hotline (814) 337-1251 opens Wednesday, September 5th and closes September 21st. Those who have projects they would like to have completed by Make A Difference Day crews may call the hotline during this time*. We also welcome groups and individuals looking to volunteer to register via the link on the United Way website: www.untiedwaywcc.org.
The MADD Committee is seeking financial and project material donations for Make a Difference Day as well as other year-round Community Improvement Center (CIC) projects. For more information on MADD/CIC project applications, volunteer sign up or donations, please contact United Way at (814) 337-1251.
* Organizers stress that submitting an application doesn’t guarantee the project will be accepted. Volunteers must visit work sites to assess the safety and the scope of the project.
