Make A Difference Day (MADD) provides students with the opportunity to volunteer in the community for a day of service. MADD is held during each fall semester and usually has between 5 and 7 different volunteer opportunities. This event is sponsored by W.A.V.E. - Western's All Volunteer Effort. Free lunch and transportation to service sites are provided.

Save the date for next year's MADD tentatively on Saturday, October 23, 2021. More details and information on how to register will be available in September 2021 on PurplePost.
