The Volunteer Center invites your business volunteer to Make a Difference Day 2014 on Friday, October 24 or Saturday October 25.


For more than two decades, USA WEEKEND and Points of Light have joined together to sponsor Make A Difference Day, which connects people with opportunities to serve, increases the strength of communities, and promotes civic engagement. Through Make a Difference Day, the Volunteer Center is joining hundreds of other organizations around the country that are engaging in community service.


There are projects throughout the Triangle in Durham, Chapel Hill, and Raleigh. Triangle nonprofits are registering service projects for Friday, October 24th or Saturday, October 25th.  Previous projects included re-building a bridge for the Birchwood Learning Center, cleaning Ellerbe Creek in kayaks, helping the Make-A-Wish Foundation with parking at the State Fair and working with The Ronald McDonald House. There will be opportunities available for businesses and organizations that would like to work as teams. Once you submit the participation form the Volunteer Center will partner you, and other local corporate teams, with non-profits in the Triangle that are hosting a service project on Make a Difference Day!
