Oct. 25th: Volunteers Needed for Make A Difference Day

Over 250 volunteers from the College of Lake County, along with volunteers from United Way of Lake County, will join millions of volunteers nationwide for service projects on Saturday, Oct. 25, 2014, Make A Difference Day, “The National Day of Doing Good.”

Make A Difference Day has become the largest community service effort in the nation, rallying corporations, government leaders, charitable organizations and everyday Americans into action on one day.
