USAG Humphreys Make A Difference Day Oct. 25, 2008

Approximately 130 Soldiers, Family Members, Retirees and Civilian volunteers joined about 60 Korean volunteers Saturday morning for the first-ever Make A Difference Day in Korea at Deog Dong San park in Pyeongtaek.

USA Weekend Magazine created Make a Difference Day about 18 years ago as national day of helping others -- a celebration of neighbors helping neighbors, according to their website, www.usaweekend.com/diffday/aboutmadd.html. Make A Difference Day is an annual event that takes place on the fourth Saturday of every October.

The volunteers spent the morning picking up trash, cleaning out storm drains and ditches and performing beautification projects around the park.

Following the work session, volunteers enjoyed lunch and a traditional Korean dance performance by students from Shin Han High School.
