Make a Difference Day is celebrated on October 28, 2017. It is celebrated each year on the fourth Saturday in October. Make a Difference Day is the largest national day of community service and is a celebration of neighbors helping neighbors. The event was created by the USA WEEKEND magazine in 1992.
Community service is a donated service or activity that is performed by someone or a group of people for the benefit of the public or its institutions. Performing community service is not the same as volunteering, since it is not always done voluntarily. (With material from: Wikipedia)
