Students to Make a Difference with Trick-or-Treat Activity

OGDEN, Utah – Weber State University students will be trick-or-treating early this year.

On Oct. 28 at noon, students will dress in WSU purple and go door-to-door in area neighborhoods asking for supplies to benefit the Ogden Rescue Mission and St. Anne's Center in conjunction with "Make A Difference Day." Participants specifically will be asking for cleaning items, laundry detergent, socks, winter clothing, gloves and non-perishable food items. On Oct. 24, students will pass out fliers to local residences where they will be collecting items.

"The donations we're asking for are basic necessities that will really help out these worthwhile causes," said Marci Rigby, WSU Student Association vice president of service.

"Make A Difference Day," which last year included more than 3 million participants nationwide, was started by "USA Weekend Magazine." For more information or to donate, contact WSU Student Activities at (801) 626-6349.
