OU students help others during Make a Difference Day
Oakland University students will participate in “Trunk-or-Treating” on Saturday, Oct. 23, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Galloway Park in Pontiac as part of the annual Make a Difference Day.
This event allows children to dress up in their Halloween costumes and “trick-or-treat” from car to car at the park and participate in other activities.
Oakland University students also will give the day care center at Baldwin Church and Community Center a good cleaning to allow for a nicer environment for children to play in during the day. This event, also on Saturday, Oct. 23, is from 9 a.m. to noon.
Make A Difference Day is the most encompassing national day of helping others — a celebration of neighbors helping neighbors. Everyone can participate. Created by USA Weekend Magazine, Make A Difference Day is an annual event that takes place on the fourth Saturday of every October.
In 2003, 3 million people cared enough about their communities to volunteer on that day, accomplishing thousands of projects in hundreds of towns.
