Make A Difference Day - Saturday, October 25, 2014

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 8 and 10 different volunteer opportunities. This event is sponsored by W.A.V.E. - Western's All Volunteer Effort.

Registration for this event is open now until Wednesday, October 22. The registration can be found on WAVE's PurplePost page or by clicking on this link here. Any student can get involved in this opportunity, although only a limited number of spaces are available for this event, so registering early is encouraged.

The event starts with registration and a light breakfast in the Lamoine Room at 9:00 am before heading out to the sites for service. Afterwards, participants will enjoy lunch and reflection on the impact we made in the community. 

Contact the Office of Student Activities if you have any questions.
