How can you make a difference in Lenawee County?

Join your neighbors and millions of volunteers across the nation on October 25th, 2014 for the 22nd annual Make A Difference Day!  VOLUNTEER Lenawee! program of the Lenawee Community Foundation in collaboration with USA WEEKEND Magazine and Points of Light, will unite with a common mission – to improve the lives of others.  Make A Difference Day is the largest national day of community service.

Please take the time this month to gather your friends and family to schedule a volunteer project of your own.  Together we can make a difference here in Lenawee County.  A volunteer project can be as ambitious as organizing a community diaper drive or as personal as helping a neighbor.  Some great local volunteer opportunities include:
