National Volunteer Week
National Volunteer Week began in 1974 when President Richard Nixon signed an executive order establishing the Week as an annual celebration of volunteerism. Every President since has signed a Proclamation promoting National Volunteer Week. Governors, mayors, and other elected officials also make public statements and sign proclamations in support of National Volunteer Week.

Make a Difference Day

Make A Difference Day is the most encompassing national day of helping others–a celebration of neighbors helping neighbors; everyone can participate. Created by USA WEEKEND Magazine, Make A Difference Day is an annual event that takes place on the fourth Saturday of every October. Millions have participated. In 2000, 2.2 million people cared enough about their communities to volunteer on that day, accomplishing thousands of projects in hundreds of towns and helping an estimated 25 million people. Your project can be as large or as small as you wish! Look around your community and see what needs to be done.
