Make A Difference Day
It’s that time of year again! It’s time for Make A Difference Day!
Make A Difference Day is the largest day of service in Northern Colorado. During one week in October, organizations just like you host projects all throughout Larimer County and United Way of Larimer County finds the volunteers to serve at those projects. Thousands of volunteers join hands each year to support Make A Difference Day. This year’s Make A Difference Day will take place the week of October 21-27, 2013.
Your organization can register a service project with United Way of Larimer County and we will find the volunteers to complete those projects. To submit a project for this year’s Make A Difference Day, contact Jamie Suess at (970) 407-7054 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submissions are due no later than Monday, August 19, 2013. All projects will be listed online and volunteers will begin registering for your project(s) on Tuesday, September 10, 2013.
