CJ Community Participating in Make a Difference Day

Each year students, faculty and staff at Chaminade Julienne participate in National Make a Difference Day. This annual community service event is being held Friday, October 25 and Saturday, October 26, 2019 at dozens of sites across the Miami Valley and the nation.

The CJ community has participated in Make a Difference Day for more than 20 years. The event was previously known as Join Hands Miami Valley and is sponsored by the United Way.

This year, CJ groups will be giving their time and talents at sites including:

  • 4 Paws for Ability
  • Catholic Social Services
  • Dayton Right to Life
  • Five Rivers Metroparks
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Marianist Environmental Education Center
  • Rebuilding Together Dayton
  • Wesley Community Center

Some CJ volunteers are participating with a specific club or team. Groups including student council, FLIGHT, Eagles for Life, Cuvilly, and several athletic teams are participating in one or more of the 16 CJ service sites.

Earlier in the month, members of Eagle Pride provided their Make a Difference Day service at the 7th annual Brunner Literacy Center 5K Run/Walk. The group provided great cheer, spirit and encouragement to all those who came out for the event.

You can see where the Eagles will be in action for National Make a Difference Day by following the CJ Ministry & Service Twitter page.
