Make A Difference Day, created by USA WEEKEND Magazine, is our most encompassing national day of service – a celebration of neighbors helping neighbors. This year Volunteer Hattiesburg has teamed up with R3SM, The Greater Pinebelt Community Foundation, United Way of Southeast Mississippi, The Hattiesburg American, Mississippi Power, and many other community partners to focus on 'Recovering the Pinebelt'.
Starting Sunday, October 20, and culminating on Saturday, October 26, we'll expand "Make A Difference Day" into a week of making a difference. To learn more about the event, and to volunteer and/or donate, follow THIS LINK
