Pace Makes a Difference Day

On Pace Makes a Difference Day, we challenge students, faculty, and staff to go into our local community and lend a helping hand. This day is a great opportunity for the Pace University community to learn how to become a part of the solution.


This year, on Saturday, October, 24th, SDCA is teaming up with local community agencies and organizations to host Pace Makes a Difference Day; taking students to service sites throughout the Westchester community. Events will be taking place from late morning to early afternoon. Lunch and transportation will be provided!

** An email will be sent out to registered students with site and activity descriptions the week of October 11th. VOLUNTEER SITE PREFERENCE WILL BE ARRANGED ON A FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE BASIS. You must confirm your attendance by filling out the site preference form by October 16th at 5pm. FILL OUT THE FORMS EARLY TO IMPROVE YOUR CHANCES OF BEING SENT TO YOUR FIRST PREFERENCE OF SITES. **

Registration to participate officially closes on Friday, October 16th at 5:00pm. However, if you want to chose where you volunteer, it is recommended you register as soon as possible. If you show up to participate on Pace Makes a Difference Day without registering, you will only be able to attend a site if there is extra room. Sites fill up very quickly. If there is not extra room, you will not be able to attend.
