Thank you to everyone who made this year's Make A Difference Day a success! This year we had students volunteering for Salvation Army, Mosaic, Genesis Garden, Horn Field, The Elms Nursing Home, Wesley Village, the Fallen Soldiers Race, and WIU Facilities.  Thank you to both Mayor Inman and President Jack Thomas for speaking!

Make A Difference Day (MADD) provides students with the opportunity to volunteer in the community for a day of service. MADD is held during each fall semester and usually has between 8 and 10 different volunteer opportunities. This event is sponsored by W.A.V.E. - Western's All Volunteer Effort.  Free lunch and transportation to service sites are provided.

Save the date for next year's MADD on Saturday, October 28, 2017!  More details and information on how to register to come.
