2017 MAKE A DIFFERENCE DAY IS A WIN-WIN 

FOR VOLUNTEERS AND HOMEOWNERS IN PLYMOUTH AND CANTON!


Plymouth Community United Way and our partner agencies work tirelessly all year long to provide programs of support to the residents of Plymouth, Canton, and Western Wayne. Our partner agencies provide programs of support for the young and the elderly, and everyone in between. One of the ways PCUW supports the elderly and those with disabilities in our community is through our annual Make a Difference Day. The purpose of Make a Difference Day is to assist the elderly and homeowners with disabilities prepare their yards for the Michigan winter weather.

In 2017, over 300 volunteers gathered at Plymouth First United Methodist Church for a light breakfast before gathering up their rakes, lawn bags and work gloves to rake leaves and provide outdoor clean-up for senior citizens and homeowners with disabilities in Plymouth and Canton. Volunteers were made up of community members looking to help out their fellow neighbor, Girl Scout and Boy Scout troops from local elementary schools, employees from corporations and businesses like Adient and JTEKT NA Corporation, as well as teams and clubs from Plymouth, Canton and Salem High Schools. "The Salem Hockey Team has raked our yard for many years in the past. My father enjoys seeing them each year," said Yvonne Begian, a homeowner who has benefited from this service. It is because of generous volunteers like these that PCUW was able to "Make a Difference" at over 65 homes in 2017.


This year's event will take place on Saturday, November 17th and there is still time for you to get involved. Make a Difference Day is a perfect service project for families, large groups, sporting teams, church groups, or even individuals looking to "Make a Difference" in their community. Information on how you can register to volunteer can be found at www.plymouthunitedway.org/difference2018 or you can contact PCUW Event Coordinator, Erica Garbacz, at (734)453-6879 x5 or via email at erica.garbacz@pcuw.org.

WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE BY WHAT WE GET, BUT WE MAKE A LIVING BY WHAT WE GIVE.
