Make a Difference Day 2017

 

Make A Difference Day is the most encompassing national day of helping others -- a celebration of neighbors helping neighbors. Everyone can participate. Created by USA WEEKEND Magazine, Make A Difference Day is an annual event that takes place on the fourth Saturday of every October.  Because of the popularity of this event, United Way will host projects on Friday, October 27 and Saturday, October 28, 2017.  This year, Brown Industries and Phenix Flooring have made available $10,000 to United Way of Northwest Georgia to fund projects taking place on Make a Difference Day.
