Make a Difference
In recognition of national "Make a Difference Day," Saint Mary's University's Volunteer Mentors group is inviting Winona residents and nonprofit agencies to submit requests for service.
The university hopes to get as many students as possible out into the community between 9 a.m. and noon on Saturday, October 27th. Students are willing to help individuals and organizations with anything from painting to yard work.
Saint Mary's will supply the workers, if you supply the materials needed (paint, brushes, rakes, tools, etc.).
To register your request, please call Chris at 457-7268 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, October 17th. Please include details about what you need done, how many students are needed for the job and where you are located.
"Make a Difference Day" is the most encompassing national day of helping others, a celebration of neighbors helping neighbors. Created by USA WEEKEND magazine, this annual event takes place on the fourth Saturday of every October. This is the 5th year in a row that SMU has been involved in the program.
