Make A Difference Day, Huntsville Alabama
@Homes Realty Group is proud to announce our first annual “Make A Difference Day Huntsville” on Saturday, November 3, 2012.
@Homes is a group of agents that live/work/love in our community. We all agree that giving back to the communities that love and support us enriches our lives. We are just off the heals of a Make A Wish fundraiser and have decided to go for it and create Huntsville’s first Make A Difference Day.
For more than two decades, USA WEEKEND and Points of Light have joined together to sponsor Make A Difference Day which is celebrated annually on the fourth Saturday in October, making this the largest national day of community service! Due to the Huntsville area Parade of Homes taking place the same weekend, we felt it was best to move our date to November 3rd, 2012, in hopes of gathering more volunteers.
This national day of community service connects people with opportunities to serve, increases the strength of communities and promotes civic engagement.
Through Make A Difference Day, @Homes Realty Group is joining hundreds of other organizations around the country that are engaging their community in service.
Our project this year will be making a difference in our Senior community. We will be focusing on building/rebuilding wheelchair ramps and general work around their homes and yards. We’ve joined hands with CASA and Madison County Senior Center. We look forward to Make A Difference Huntsville 2012.
Currently, we have a wish list from 30 seniors. We are just a few volunteers short. We’d love to be able to fulfill each and every wish.
As a special treat to all of the volunteers, Huntsville’s very own Heather Petersen from Slice At A Time has volunteered to surprise us all with homemade cinnamon rolls to get us ready for our day! Thank you Heather!!!! I’m drooling already!
Please sign up at the event site, via Facebook or feel free to give us a call to volunteer. Jenni is our organizer. Thank you in advance for all of your hard work Jenni! We’ll meet at @Homes Realty, 8:30 am, Saturday November 3rd, 2012. 100 Providence Main Street, Suite B. (above CVS…second floor, ALL the way down the hall. Follow the @sign!) 256-585-6000
