In 1992, USA Weekend Magazine started Make A Difference Day which is held the fourth Saturday of October across the United States in conjunction with the Points of Light organization. This is one of the largest National Days of community service meant for people to step up to the plate and help others.
On this day there will be millions of Americans who take time to participate in many different ways. 1-800-Charity Cars, an award-winning vehicle donation program, would like to ask you all to make a commitment to become involved this Make A Difference Day.
We have composed the following list of ideas, and resources that you can use to get involved:
- Help a neighbor in need
- Collect food for local food banks
- Collect winter coats for the homeless
- Clean up your neighborhood
- Clean up your local park
- Volunteer your time
- Volunteer goods or services
- Make a charitable donation
- Start a project of your own
- Find a project for which you can volunteer
- Use your social networks to share what you are doing using the hashtag #MDDAY
