Make a Difference Day

Sep 28

Volunteers across the country come together each October for Make A Difference Day, united with a common mission to improve the lives of others through service projects. And each year, TEGNA recognizes 14 outstanding project leaders, awarding $140,000 in grants that are donated to the charities related to the winning projects. As we prepare for Make A Difference Day 2017, Points of Light is recognizing these extraordinary difference makers with Daily Point of Light Awards.
