Doing volunteer work and helping improve the community is important to many people in the Washtenaw County area, and Saturday is a day tailored specifically for that purpose.
It's Make A Difference Day, and United Way of Washtenaw County Community Impact and Volunteer Center Manager Amanda Reel says it's your chance to give an hour or more of your time for a good cause.
"All of these are really fun events," Reel says, "so it's a really great way to get out, you get to bring your family, have a good time and be part of something bigger - a much larger impact."
The United Way of Washtenaw County has a new website designed to match volunteers with agencies looking for some help. Volunteerwashtenaw.org has been up and running for about a month.
You'll find more than 100 agencies looking for volunteers, with some of the opportunities taking place on Saturday for Make A Difference Day.
