Help Make A Difference Day Organizers Locate Needy Projects A small act of kindness can make a big difference to a person, family or community in need, whether it’s planting flowers, reading to children or providing food and clothing to families. Consider joining neighbors and organizations in Webster Groves and Shrewsbury as part of “Make A Difference Day 2013” — a national day of service — on Saturday, Oct. 26. Individuals, families or groups may undertake a project or come up with their own idea. The Webster Groves Lions Club will provide lunch to volunteers at the Webster Groves Recreation Complex from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. A limited number of free T-shirts are available to volunteers who sign up in advance.
Make A Difference Day in Webster Groves and Shrewsbury is a call to action. “We all know too well the problems that face our communities: abused and neglected children, families who need food, clothing or toys, youngsters who do not have books or someone to read to them, elderly neighbors who would welcome a visitor or need help with yard work, food pantries with insufficient provisions, to name just a few,” said Webster Groves Recreation Supervisor Wayne Dunker. Event organizers are looking for specific projects to assign individuals and groups. Those who know of individuals or organizations in need of help can contact Steve Clark at 9635623 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
