On Saturday, Oct. 30 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., St. Norbert College students, faculty and staff will participate in Make a Difference Day.

Members of the college community will help the De Pere elderly winterize their homes by raking leaves, cleaning gutters, wash windows, and more. Students will also be collecting donations to help the charitable efforts of St. Norbert College's Habitat for Humanity goal of reaching $10,000 before December to fund a local build.

Interested De Pere community members who would like to participate in Make a Difference Day should contact the St. Norbert College Residence Hall Association through Sienna Rauterkus at (920) 403-3360.

Make a Difference Day was created by USA Weekend Magazine and is an annual event scheduled for the fourth Saturday of October nationwide. St. Norbert is marking the day a week later than most because homecoming falls on Oct. 23.
