Make a Difference Day is Saturday, October 11, and the City of University Place is gearing up with a host of organized events for volunteers from 9 a.m. to noon. Several parks will benefit from beautification, including the Adriana Hess Wetlands, 2917 Morrison Road West, University Place, and Homestead Park, 3716 Bridgeport Way West, University Place.
Make A Difference Day is the most encompassing national day of helping others – a celebration of neighbors helping neighbors. Everyone can participate: friends, families, businesses, athletic teams, civic groups and individuals.
Morning refreshments will be provided for all participants. Please bring gloves and hand tools for planting and raking leaves and debris.
