More than 400 people from the campus community at Grand Valley State University are expected to participate in Make a Difference Day on Saturday, October 22.

Grand Valley faculty, staff and students will volunteer their time to more than 20 Grand Rapids area organizations such as Kids Food Basket and Rays of Hope for Haiti.

Participants will meet in the Kirkhof Center on the Allendale Campus at 9 a.m., where Vice Provost and Dean of Students Bart Merkle will welcome volunteers before they are bused to various sites throughout Grand Rapids.

Entering its 21st year, Make a Difference Day is held annually and supported by millions of Americans who want to help change the world. Students can sign up at www.gvsu.edu/service.
