Newman's Own Supports Volunteerism Event This Weekend
Make A Difference Day will take place this Saturday, October 24, 2015 in neighborhoods throughout the country, bringing Americans together for the common good. Tens of thousands will participate in the nation's largest day of volunteerism, sponsored by Gannett's USA TODAY in partnership with TEGNA, Points of Light, the nation's largest organization dedicated to volunteer service, and Newman’s Own®, Inc.
Thousands of volunteers participate in planned projects, from cleaning parks to working with local animal rescues. Independently created projects are scheduled across the country, comprising efforts from individuals, corporations, universities, communities, states and nonprofit organizations. Those looking to start a project or join an existing one can do so at makeadifferenceday.com. The site has information on projects across the country detailing how they will help others on October 24. The interactive database also allows visitors to search for events in their community. The Gannett Foundation, supported by Gannett, is contributing $400,000 in community grants and leading more than 80 volunteer projects across the country on Make A Difference Day. . .
