Description

Looking for some ways to give back?
For the first time, Oxnard is taking part in the nationwide Make a Difference Day effort, and organizers hope Saturday's event will raise awareness of local groups that need volunteers and create a pool of volunteers that will serve the community for years to come.
“We’re hoping to connect the community organizations for those that are not aware," said Lucy Cartagena Martinez, founder of Family First, an Oxnard organization that’s sponsoring Oxnard's Make a Difference Day. "Oxnard is the biggest city in the county, yet our community goes to other communities to volunteer."
She said she hopes this event will make more people realize that they can "give back at home and take care of their neighbors.”
"We’re hoping to plant a seed and make our community grow," she said.
Make a Difference Day, which will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Plaza Park in Oxnard, was inspired by Martinez, who learned about national Make a Difference Day and wanted to bring the volunteer drive to a local level.
