Make a Difference Day

Make a Difference Day is a national day of helping others—a celebration of neighbors helping neighbors.

Check back closer to the date for specific projects. Last year 24 volunteers including scouts from Troops 101 and 2000 plus students from Terra Linda High School painted benches and picnic tables at Albert Park Field.

San Rafael celebrates the day as the culmination of its own season of monthly service projects from April to October. Created by USA WEEKEND Magazine, Make a Difference Day is an annual event. Click here for the National Make a Difference Day website.
