For two decades, USA Weekend and the HandsOn Network, a business unit of the Points of Light Institute (the same volunteer organization that brought us the Give a Day, Get a Disney Day event earlier this year,) have joined together to sponsor Make a Difference Day, the largest national day of helping others. Make a Difference Day takes place on the 4th Saturday of October each year.
On Saturday, October 23, 2010 Bryant Animal Shelter and the HandsOn network will not only seize the moment to inspire, equip and mobilize corporations, nonprofit organizations, families and individuals to improve their communities, but also engage them to get HandsOn throughout the year!
