Each Make A Difference Day, United Way Volunteer Connection coordinates the largest raking project in the area, helping give elderly and disabled residents peace of mind and increasing their independence. Plan to join us on October 24 for Make A Difference Day 2020!
In 2019, over 1,000 volunteers came together with rakes and trailers to clean up 130+ yards of elderly or disabled residents in the greater Wausau area. Total volunteer hours topped 3,000! Volunteers included school groups (from elementary to college), Boy Scout Troops, Girl Scout Troops, corporate groups, families, churches, service organizations and more. Several bags of food and toiletries and many boxes of winter coats were also collected on Make A Difference Day.
Spectrum also provided free Home Safety Kits for homeowners. The kits included a smoke detector, AM/FM radio, weatherstripping, cleaning wipes, first aid kit, and other home safety items.
