Make a Difference Day 
 
The Annual “Make a Difference Day” was held in October and was an opportunity for the entire community to come together and offer 4 hours of volunteer service to vulnerable, elderly, or homebound residents at a variety of work projects throughout Fountain Hills. People were painting, cleaning, patching, planting, raking, hauling debris and much more…every contribution made a difference…neighbor helping neighbor! We began the day at Golden Eagle Park  for juice, coffee, fruit and pastries where volunteers received their assigned worksite project and “kick-off” information.
