‘Make a Difference Day,’ Lasallian Day of Service is Oct. 22

Saint Mary’s students will be out volunteering in the community for ‘Make a Difference Day’ between 9 a.m. and noon on Saturday, Oct. 22, through the Office of Campus Ministry.

“Make a Difference Day” is the most encompassing national day of helping others, a celebration of neighbors helping neighbors. Created by USA WEEKEND magazine, this annual event takes place on the fourth Saturday of every October.

Also on Oct. 22, Saint Mary’s alumni in Twin Cities, Chicago, Winona and all over the country are organizing volunteer sites in their local communities for the third annual Lasallian Day of Service.

All area alumni and friends are invited to participate in the Winona-area Lasallian Day of Service (from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.) with Habitat for Humanity. Volunteers will assist in the construction of a new Habitat Home in the Winona area. Alumni will be volunteering with current SMU students.
