We are the “Small Town with a Big Heart”
Saturday, October 24, 7:30 a.m.
“Make a Difference Day” is all about helping our neighbors. Many vulnerable homeowners in our community need help to remain in their homes until their life ends, and the volunteers on Make a Difference Day use their skills to make that goal obtainable. Daily activities that most of us take for granted can be impossible for neighbors with physical limitations.
- Challenges can include cleaning cabinets and shelves that cannot be reached due to physical limitations and therefore are left unclean for years.
- Minor repairs or landscaping are essential for homeowners who, due to financial and physical burdens, are unable to do for themselves.
- Projects in Parks and public spaces that are beyond the Town’s current budget possibilities can be accomplished as well.
Groups from service clubs and organizations, the faith community, and Town volunteers make up a large part of the workforce, but each year more and more individuals sign up to help. Some people sew, some clean, organize, rake or trim…in short, not special skills are required, just the desire to be a good neighbor to someone in need.
This short USA Today video features some of our volunteers and the impact that a few hours of loving attention can have. This is becoming an annual tradition for many of our teens and families, so take a moment and sign up to help…you’ll find that you “get more than you give.”
