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 21 and Saturday, October 22, 2016.  This year, Brown Industries and Phenix Flooring has 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 selected which projects received full or partial funding. The committee was looking for volunteer projects that will make a huge impact in Whitfield or Murray County. Below are the 2016 Make a Difference Day projects.
