Volunteers from Re-Church in downtown Des Moines enjoy finding treasures as they sort through donations in our Hope Bargain Center!
Every October, caring volunteers nationwide participate in National Make A Difference Day. Known as the "national day of doing good," Make A Difference Day was originally created by USA WEEKEND Magazine and takes place on the fourth Saturday of every October. In 2007, three million people participated by volunteering on Make A Difference Day.
Here at Hope Ministries, we’ve got our own take on National Make A Difference Day: we call it Big Diff Day!
On Big Diff Day, volunteers can participate in the work of Hope Ministries by doing a variety of things from serving meals at our Hope Café to delivering groceries to homeless men and women living in tent camps around Des Moines to sorting donations in our Hope Bargain Center.
The jobs volunteers do on Big Diff Day are actually the types of things the more than 1,000 volunteers who partner with our ministry each year do every day at Hope Ministries. The only difference? The day has a catchy name!
