Make A Difference Saturday

APRIL 6, 2024

United Way of Western Crawford County’s Make a Difference Saturday event will be held Saturday, April 6, 2024!  This annual service event will complete multiple small critical home repairs for local low-income and senior homeowners throughout Western Crawford County.  Project requests ranging from, among others, ramps to porch/step repair will be considered by the Community Improvement Center committee. 

To request/apply please call (814) 337-1251 - applications will be accepted from Monday, February 5, 2024 thru Friday, March 1, 2024.  Requests made prior to Friday February 16, 2024 will be prioritized.


YOU have an opportunity to join us for future events!  See below for ways you and your organization can participate.

1. Donate: We provide a light breakfast and lunch for project volunteers to boost their energy throughout the day, especially on time-consuming projects. These items include:

  • Bottled Water/ Coffee/ Hot Chocolate 
  • Donuts/Muffins
  • Fruit (apples, bananas, etc.)
  • Granola Bars

Please note:  Lending works too!  We also use a variety of tools for projects throughout the day: rakes, hedge trimmers, power-washers, shovels, etc.  Any support in this area is greatly appreciated!

2. Volunteer

Service events would be impossible without the volunteers. We ask local organizations and residents to form a team to participate. Please encourage your colleagues and friends to join this effort! Having a team participate in these events can enhance the visibility of your organization and commitment to the community. Please call (814) 337-1251.
