Make a Difference Day 2018


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 26 and Saturday, October 27, 2018.  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. A committee of United Way volunteers will select which projects receive full or partial funding. The committee is looking for volunteer projects that will make a huge impact in Whitfield or Murray County. The grants will range from $100 – $5,000.  Please apply for an amount that you feel is realistic for your project.
