Make A Difference Day is a nationwide day of doing good but is celebrated for nearly the entire month of October in Larimer County because of its popularity and continued success. For the last 17 years, United Way has organized the event in Larimer County, and Make A Difference Day activities are the largest week of volunteer service in northern Colorado.
This past October, 1,830 volunteers lent their heart, time and muscle to complete 94 volunteer service projects throughout Larimer County. In total, volunteers provided approximately 7,694 hours of service. The estimated value for one hour of volunteer service is $23.07, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. When translated into dollar impact, 2015 Make A Difference Day volunteers in Larimer County invested $177,523 back into the community.
