Make a Difference Day

Make A Difference Day

The fourth Saturday in October each year is designated at "Make A Difference Day" (MADD). This national day is set aside for community members to come together to volunteer, raise funds, offer support, and learn about the needs in their community.

Even small actions can make a difference! You can join one of our larger scale events or start by cleaning-up near your home. This is a day to start being the change you want to see in the world.

2022 Opportunity 

Join us in making a difference in an area subject to potential flooding due to the Pipeline Fire. There is work to be done in the Rio de Flag channel near Cheshire Park. Come and help tackle invasive species, remove woody plants blocking water flow, clean-up litter and woody debris, and work on a section of the Flagstaff Urban Trail System (FUTS).
