The 30th annual Make a Difference Day is Saturday, October 24th around North Central Washington.

The Pybus Foundation is now overseeing the charitable event and Co-Coordinator Barbara Harris says things are a little different in the pandemic world.

"It has not deterred anybody in our community. We still have the Valley's community spirit. People have had to dig deep and be creative. We're excited that people have done that while doing social distancing. Some of the projects people are more spread out. There's a lot more donations happening this year."

Former Coordinator Laurel Helton says the projects can be large or small.

"We say, 'Where there's a need, do a good deed.' You can plug into these projects where people are you will show up. ... Just go on the website at and look at the projects listed. Take a look on that website, find a project and you can go out and do it. But if you'd like to, just do something right there in your neighborhood, or as simple as write a letter of thanks."

KPQ and our sister stations of Cherry Creek Media will be partnering with the Serve Wenatchee again as we do the annual Coats for Kids Drive.

We'll be collecting gently used winter clothing for kids up to 18 at the Albertson's parking lot from 10 a.m. through 2 p.m.
