'Make a Difference Day' Volunteers Needed

Wednesday 16, 2013

            MARQUETTE, Mich.—Additional volunteers are needed for “Make a Difference Day,” which is being coordinated locally through the Northern Michigan University Volunteer Center. The event will be held on Saturday, Oct. 26.

The center has extended the registration deadline to 3 p.m. Monday, Oct. 21, in the hope that more individuals and groups will come forward to assist the 238 area homeowners who have requested help with raking and other yard work. Participants will receive a free breakfast and t-shirt the morning of the event.

For more information or to volunteer, call 227-2466 or email volctr@nmu.edu. Last year, nearly 1,500 volunteers and 135 NMU student groups completed 242 service projects in Marquette County.
