Lexington, Ky. (Oct. 24, 2002) -- On Saturday, Oct. 26, people from across the United States will participate in National Make a Difference Day. This annual event is the most encompassing national day of helping others -- a celebration of neighbors helping neighbors.

Throughout this week, the University of Kentucky has been incorporating the theme of "making a difference" into its homecoming activities.

Several campus departments have joined forces to sponsor a campus-wide food drive to benefit God's Pantry, and student organizations will work on community projects to make a difference in the neighborhoods that surround campus.
God's Pantry's food bins have been placed all around campus in popular areas such as Patterson Office Tower, the Student Center, White Hall Classroom Building and UK Hospital.

UK's philanthropic events surrounding National Make a Difference Day will culminate during the UK versus Georgia football game on Oct. 26.

Created by USA WEEKEND Magazine, Make a Difference Day takes place on the fourth Saturday of every October.
