Saturday, October 26th, is National Make a Difference Day, a day that brings together community service organizations every fourth Saturday of October to make a difference in improving the lives of others, no matter how big or small. The event was created by USA WEEKEND magazine and Points of Light in 1992, and quickly became the largest national day of community service for over twenty years.
Although the founding organizations no longer sponsor the event, volunteers and organizations still observe the event each year by helping their local communities to meet their unique needs. For instance, Laurence Segal’s Cans for Cancer collects bottles and cans each year so that proceeds will go toward cancer research, and the Central School of Grand Cane participates by spending the day sanding and painting picnic tables.
NAWRB provides one of the most thorough resources for women in the industry, covering a wide-range of topics and issues affecting women in the housing ecosystem from poverty and homeownership to C-suite opportunities and family offices. Our professional development tool revitalizes communication and partnerships between industries as we work together to form mindful strategic solutions achieved through a gender lens.
