Pen cities gear up for Make A Difference Day

On Oct. 24, San Mateo County residents have the chance to clean up communities and collect food donations.

The projects are part of National Make a Difference Day, which aims to encourage and recruit volunteers to help out in their communities.

There’s a wide range of volunteer events taking place on the Peninsula, including coastal cleanups and graffiti removal.

In Daly City, officials are partnering with Safe Kids Coalition and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford University to teach parents how to install car seats.

Girl Scouts across Northern California are collecting donations to be delivered to local food banks Oct. 24, including the Second Harvest Food Bank in San Mateo County.

In 2008, an estimated 3 million people nationwide participated in Make A Difference Day projects.
