Chico Make A Difference Day 2017

Saturday, October 28, 2017 Chico’s community and local organizations will be taking part of a national movement, Chico Make a Difference Day, #MDDayChico. Make A Difference Day is the largest single-day of volunteering in the country. This campus-community day of service will celebrate Chico’s community spirit and will unite students and local residents around common causes that make our city special.

Participants will enjoy a FREE T-Shirt and a FREE BBQ at the Downtown City Plaza after the Chico Make A Difference Day event.
