‘Make a Difference Day’ lasts a month this year; four projects on Westside need volunteers
The United Way's Make a Difference Day had already stretched to two days in recent years. This year, to accommodate volunteer time constraints and fickle
weather, it's become a whole month.
With 2,500 already signed up citywide, 900 volunteers are still being sought for 35 projects to help non-profit or government entities during October, according to Maggie Brubaker, the United Way's coordinator for the project.
Included are four Westside projects (entity in parentheses):
One other project, just east of I-25, is at the Pikes Peak Historical Street Railway Foundation, 2333 Steel Drive, where volunteers are sought to help clean and beautify the interiors of vintage streetcars Saturday, Oct. 13 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. (Pikes Peak Historical Street Railway Foundation).
“Make a Difference Month is the largest community service effort in the nation bringing millions of Americans across the country together to improve their communities and help neighbors in need,” a project release states.
To sign up for a project, call Brubaker at 955-0741 or go to the volunteerpikespeak.org website and click on the Sign Up link for Make a Difference Month.
