Make A Difference Day is coming up Saturday, Oct. 26, and the city is urging residents to get ready to be a part of the national call-to-action day of doing good.
The city recently posted on its website a message with some of the opportunities to serve that will be available that day.
According to the city’s post, each year the Wheaton Community Relations Commission promotes and urges people to participate, and works with local organizations spread the word and garner interest in Make a Difference Day.
