“Make a Difference Day”, created by The Points of Light Foundation, is one of the largest national days of service in the United States. For the last 20 years, the event has been acknowledged on the fourth Saturday in October, with the goal of uniting people to make a difference in public spaces while improving the lives of others through service, increasing the strength of the community and promoting civic engagement.

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation with support from Bold Gold Media Group, The River Reporter, The Sullivan County Democrat, DVEight, and The Times Herald-Record.  Learn how to get involved as a volunteer or as a partner organization by calling Sullivan Renaissance at 845-295-2445 or visiting
