Make a Difference Day is an annual community service day that is celebrated nationwide. Originally founded by USA WEEKEND Magazine, Make a Difference Day is celebrated on the fourth Saturday of every October. Millions participate each year, helping to accomplish thousands of projects in hundreds of towns across the country.
The College at Brockport has been participating in Make a Difference Day since 1999. Projects have ranged from painting fences, planting flowers and raking leaves to sanitizing the child care facilities, and this year's activities will be no different!

The College at Brockport Make a Difference Day 2009 had 130 student participants and was the first year students had the opportunity to Web register for community projects of their choice. Students made a difference by raking leaves at a local playground and picking up the town's canal banks. Participants washed windows at the Brockport Child Development Center and organized books for the Migrant Ministry. A group of students went to the Brockport Food Shelf in town and helped organize donations and clean off their shelves.
The Make a Difference Day projects this year were a huge success! The winner of our club/organization contest was Alpha Phi Omega with 25 participants, winning an ice cream social sponsored by the Office of Leadership & Community Development.
