College students to participate in 'Make-A-Difference Day' Saturday

PLATTSBURGH - Students from the State University of New York at Plattsburgh will take to the streets of Plattsburgh this Saturday, Oct. 24, in recognition of National Make-A-Difference Day.

The students will be participating in the nation's largest day of service, volunteering their time at eight nonprofit organizations and throughout the Plattsburgh community. The projects scheduled for that day range from painting and repairing the porch of an elderly cancer survivor to setting up and staffing the haunted house at the City Recreation Department's Paranormal Expo, the proceeds from which will be donated to the Plattsburgh Interfaith Food Shelf.

That night, a special free community meal will conclude the day's activities at the college's Algonquin Dining Hall on Rugar Street.
