WINONA, Minn. — In recognition of national “Make a Difference Day,” Saint Mary’s University’s Volunteer Mentors group is inviting Winona residents and nonprofit agencies to submit requests for service.
The university hopes to get as many students as possible out into the community between 1 and 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 26. Students are willing to help individuals and organizations with anything from painting to yard work.
Saint Mary’s will supply the workers, if you supply the materials needed (paint, brushes, rakes, tools, etc.).
“Make a Difference Day” is a national day of helping others, a celebration of neighbors helping neighbors. Created by USA WEEKEND magazine, this annual event takes place on the fourth Saturday of every October. For the sixth year, SMU is proud to join the millions of people throughout the nation who are participating.
To register your request, please call Chris McClead at (507) 457-7268 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, Oct. 18. Please include details about what you need done, how many students are needed for the job and where you are located.
