(NEWS CENTER) — Volunteers across the country will unite for Make A Difference Day on Oct. 28, including right here in Maine. This annual event is one of the largest single days of service nationwide.

NEWS CENTER is partnering with World of Change on Make A Difference Day. Volunteers at ChangeFest will be working on projects provided by World of Change's nonprofit partners and include packing bags with food and painting furniture along with projects that will help the community.


ChangeFest will take place at L.L.Bean in Freeport from noon to 6 p.m. and at the L.L.Bean Outlet Store in Bangor from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

NEWS CENTER will have active Snapchat filters in both locations, each beginning and ending an hour before and after the events take place — 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. in Freeport and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Bangor!

The hope of ChangeFest is to inspire community gathering while engaging festivalgoers through sensory imagery, activity and connectivity. Along with the service projects, World of Change is attempting to set a world record of change collected in one place, with 100 percent of the change being distributed to its nonprofit partners.
