Make a Difference Day is a signature Fountain Hills event. It is a great way to give back to the community!


Make a Difference Day is October 24th from 7:30 am-12:30 pm. It will begin at Golden Eagle Park. Fountain Hills Mayor Ginny Dickey will kick the event off with an opening speech.

Make a Difference Day is made possible by local volunteers. It is a great opportunity for the community to come together. The 4 hours of service will be for vulnerable, elderly, and homebound residents. There will be a variety of exterior/outdoor projects throughout the town.

Every person makes a difference in our community, neighbors helping neighbors!
