(NEWS CENTER) -- Employees from NEWS CENTER and their families will try and make a difference by volunteering at Preble Street in Portland and the Bangor Area Homeless Shelter in Bangor, on one of the largest annual single days of service nationwide.

#MDAA -- Make A Difference Day will take place on Saturday, October 22, 2016. It unites volunteers from across the country with a common mission: to improve the lives of others through a wide range of community-driven service projects.

The TEGNA Foundation, supported by TEGNA Inc. (NYSE: TGNA), will contribute $185,000 in

community grants for Make A Difference Day projects across the country. Make A Difference Day is made
possible by the employees of TEGNA with support from the Arby’s Foundation and longtime partner
