BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- The Chapel School and Village Lutheran Church in Bronxville participated in Make a Difference Day recently.
Make a Difference Day is an international event where millions of volunteers from around the world unite in a common mission to improve the lives of others.
School families, church members, and friends of the community gathered to complete various projects including making toys for animals in shelters, decorating pillowcases for children in hospitals, baking cookies for firefighters and writing letters to soldiers overseas.
Kate Porter, the school's music teacher for Pre-K through grade 2 and youth minister of the Village Lutheran Church, organized the Make a Difference event. It was the second year the school and church have participated.
