How will you make a difference?

Saturday, Oct. 25, marks the 18th annual Make a Difference Day, a national event sponsored by USA Weekend magazine.

Millions of Americans are expected to take part by volunteering for a host of activities to enrich their neighborhoods and communities.

Whether by knitting sweaters for the poor, entertaining nursing-home patients or collecting items for area food pantries, the Nashua area has been generous in past years in extending a hand to neighbors during Make a Difference Day.

There still is time for groups or individuals to plan an activity.

Potential volunteers can check with local social-service agencies to see if they need assistance. Or people can take on those good ideas they’ve had for a while but always managed to put off.
