Make A Difference Month

The Center for Service in Action is excited to announce that Make a Difference Day will now become Make a Difference Month for the whole month of October! 

We're changing our tradition in hopes that we can better meet the needs of your organization. Make a Difference Month is really about helping organizations when they need it most during October. Instead of trying to match volunteers with community service opportunities on just one designated day, we’re confident this new approach will allow us to match even more organizations in need with volunteers who want to do something good for their community.

Join us in helping support the non-profits, schools, and families of San Luis Obispo County by signing up now. Sign-up as a group with your club, company, fraternity or sorority OR sign-up individually to build your community around service!

Every volunteer serving at an event within the month of October will receive a FREE Make a Difference Month T-shirt!


Available Service Opportunities

Service projects will be posted soon! To stay up to date sign up for our e-newsletter or follow us on social media.
