Make A Difference Day Nominations and Volunteers Applications Due Oct. 1


GOODYER, ARIZ. (Sept. 2, 2010) Everyone can use a helping hand at one time or another. Perhaps you've noticed a neighbor's home in need of basic repairs, a ramp for wheelchair access, yard maintenance, or other work that has been left undone because the residents are elderly, disabled or experiencing an especially difficult time. Now is the time to submit nominations for Goodyear's annual Make A Difference Day projects.


Make A Difference Day is celebrated on Saturday, Oct. 23 by the City of Goodyear in partnership with local Rotary Clubs. It is a day of service dedicated to helping others -- a celebration of neighbors helping neighbors. Local Rotary Clubs will review the nominations and identify two or three "fix up" projects for Make A Difference Day. Then, partnering with the City, Rotary members and local businesses, volunteers will get to work on the Make A Difference Day projects.


You are invited to nominate an individual or family who may have a need that could be met through the efforts of this year's Make A Difference Day projects. Even if you don't know your neighbor's name, simply submit the address and the organizers will attempt to find the other information. Volunteers are also needed to lend a hand and make these projects a success.
