The East Central Kansas Economic Opportunity Corporation is participating in the national ``Make a Difference Day'' on Oct. 24.
ECKAN, the Boy Scouts, Wal-Mart and KPL are participating in the event, which also needs volunteers. Participants will be cleaning gutters, raking and cleaning debris from lawns, putting plastic on windows, donating food and other projects. Any food to be donated can be taken to ECKAN or Pelathe Center.
This day is held to help others, especially the elderly and disabled low-income. To help during ``Make a Difference Day,'' contact ECKAN at 1600 Haskell Ave. Suite 197 or call 841-3357.
