Fremont makes a difference
Submitted By City of Fremont
The City of Fremont was one of three cities, as well as many individual winners, recognized nationally by USA WEEKEND, which hosts a national Make A Difference Day Competition.
Make A Difference Day, which is always the third Saturday in October, is a National Day of Volunteering and giving back to the Community. Fremont, through the City's Human Relations Commission, has participated in this event for the past 11 years.
Last year, the City had over 1,300 volunteers conduct 76 amazing projects from school beautification efforts to park, street and graffiti cleanups, to an oil change clinic for single moms. Over 25 faith organizations also joined the volunteer activities.
The Fremont Family Resource Center was awarded $10,000 for Fremont's award. The money will be used to sponsor Make a Difference Day 2013.
