MARY HENSON

Co-Coordinator
“This event encompasses the idea of neighbors helping neighbors and to see in action how big or small things make a difference to the members of our community is beautiful. It is not hard to see why this valley is known nationally for the work we do every year for Make A Difference Day, because reaching out to one another and helping is just a core part of who we are. I am extremely proud to be a part of this incredible process and can’t wait to see what we do this year!”

BARBARA HARRIS

Remember, kindness, whether great or small, can make a difference in someone’s day. Thanks in advance for your continued support in spreading kindness throughout our beautiful valley.”
