For more than 20 years, USA WEEKEND Magazine and Points of Light have joined together to sponsor Make A Difference Day, the largest national day of community service. Millions of volunteers around the world unite in a common mission to improve the lives of others. The day is always held on the last Saturday of the month.

There  are a broad range of volunteer opportunities happening throughout Las Vegas on the day so just search for “Make a Difference Day Las Vegas” and choose something that fits your schedule and talents. Plant a tree, help out in a food bank or perhaps visit the elderly.

Even if your schedule does not permit you to volunteer throughout the year, make this one day special and give back to your community.

The Love Dog animal therapy team will be spread out across the valley doing what they do daily, harness the power of the animals to bring about emotional, cognitive or physical benefits.
