Make A Difference Day project nominations


GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (Aug. 10, 2010) The City of Goodyear is accepting nominations for projects for the annual Make A Difference Day, which will be 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.


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's the time to suggest a project or someone who might be helped through the Make A Difference Day project.


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. Nominees must be residents of Goodyear. 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, and donations of materials and cash are especially appreciated.


To submit a nomination for the Make A Difference Day projects, contact Sam Debus at 623-882-7947or , or by mail at City of Goodyear, 190 N. Litchfield Road, Goodyear AZ 85338. Or log on to


To sign up as a Make A Difference Day volunteer, contact Judi Switanek, City of Goodyear Volunteer Coordinator at 623-882-7807 or


Nominations and volunteer applications must be received by October 1, 2010. Earliest entries will receive priority consideration.
