3rd annual Make a Difference Day headed to Richland
RICHLAND, Wash., -- Mark October 22nd down on your calendar as a chance for you to make a difference in our community.
Hundreds of volunteers will gather that Saturday at Claybell Park off of Bellerive and Gage in Richland. They'll build trails in the Amon Creek basin and install some new all-inclusive playground equipment. All kids, including those with disabilities will be able to fully enjoy the park.
Make a Difference Day is a national day of doing good and was started by USA Today.
This is the Tri-Cities' third annual Make a Difference Day project.
"Volunteering is a lot of work," says the manager of the City of Richland Parks and Recreation Department Phil Pinard. "It's a lot of fun, it's a lot of getting to know people that you are working with you and it's an opportunity to participate in activities in your city that you can take pride in."
