Local Volunteers Encouraged to Participate in Largest National Day of Community Service, Opportunities for All to Get Involved

Jennings announced plans to take part in Make A Difference Day on October 28, the largest national day of community service. Through Make A Difference Day, volunteers will join hundreds of other organizations around the country that are engaging their community in service.  Jennings is seeking volunteers to let residents know that they are still thought about and are valuable members of our community.

Jennings’ Volunteer Coordinator Laura Resecker is seeking volunteers to visit residents at Jennings from 10:00a.m. – noon on October 28. Volunteers can have simple conversations, enjoy a game, play music or other engaging ways to visit. “I have the pleasure of working in the residents’ home,” she said. “I see how visitors brighten their day, and I encourage people to experience how a conversation can make a difference for someone.” 

TEGNA and Points of Light have joined together to sponsor Make A Difference Day, which has been celebrated for more than two decades annually on the fourth Saturday in October. This national day of community service connects people with opportunities to serve, increases the strength of communities and promotes civic engagement. “Make A Difference Day has become an enduring tradition that brings people together, across differences, to help solve community problems,” said Tracy Hoover, CEO of Points of Light. “With projects throughout the country, it’s a great opportunity to start volunteering or, if you already volunteer, it’s a great time to invite a friend to join you.”

For details about making a difference at Jennings, contact Volunteer Coordinator Laura Resecker at (216) 581-2900, or visit http://www.makeadifferenceday.com/dashboard/project/jennings-makes-a-difference
