Make a Difference Day

MDD 2014Saturday, October 28, 2017

9am to noon

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

Check back closer to the date for our specific project.  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.
