National Make a Difference Day

October 23, 2010 marked the 20th anniversary of National Make A Difference Day, the largest national day of community service. Held annually the fourth Saturday of October, Make A Difference Day is an all-encompassing national day of service dedicated to helping others — a celebration of neighbors helping neighbors.

To honor this day, Habitat OC welcomed almost 80 volunteers to the Fullerton construction site from Beckman Coulter. Broken up into two shifts, the volunteers joined three families from the San Juan Capistrano site and three families from the Fullerton site. The volunteers dug trenches, painted and cleaned up the site. It was truly a remarkable day.

I invite everyone to take action in their own community and volunteer. View video of the volunteers and families building together.

We must become the change we want to see.
- Mahatma Gandhi
