Make A Difference Day
For more than two decades, we have joined with USA WEEKEND to partner on Make A Difference Day, the largest national day of community service. On the fourth Saturday of October, millions of volunteers around the world unite in a common mission to improve the lives of others. Make A Difference Day is a day to celebrate the power of people to make a difference.

ServiceWorks projects will take place on Make A Difference Day in multiple cities.
