The Army Volunteer Corps, along with Army Community Service, is hoping to make the Fort Leonard Wood Community even better, by sponsoring several volunteer-based projects on “Make A Difference Day,” Saturday.

“Make a Difference Day is the nation’s most encompassing day of community service,” said Rhonda Hutsell, Army Volunteer Corps coordinator. Held each fourth Saturday in October, “Make a Difference Day,” began as an event sponsored by USA Weekend Magazine and has become a national tradition.

At 7 a.m., Saturday, there will be a continental breakfast for all volunteers and at 8 a.m., there will be a balloon launch. Following the balloon launch volunteers will depart to designated project sites. Following the project work, volunteers will then have the opportunity to take part in an “after action” luncheon.

“There are nine different (beautification) projects on Fort Leonard Wood that folks have come together to work on and improve the beauty of the area,” Hutsell said.

“No matter where or how they choose to serve, volunteers in our community share the same purpose — making life better for all military personnel, families, DoD civilians, and (helping) improving military communities.

“Many of our programs are supported and directed by volunteers. Without the volunteers many of our programs would not happen. Volunteers make Fort Leonard Wood a world-class installation, and, because volunteers are so vital to this installation, there are never enough.”

For more information on “Make a Difference Day,” or the Army Volunteer Corps, contact Hutsell at 596.0212 or e-mail her at
