The City of Carlsbad will host an event aimed to encourage members of the “millennial” generation, generally those born from the early 1980s to the early 2000s, to get involved in volunteering. Make a Date to Make Difference event will take place Thursday, Nov. 20, at 7 p.m., at 83 Degrees restaurant, 660 Carlsbad Village Drive.
“This is an opportunity to meet other millennials, enjoy free appetizers and sign up to volunteer for a worthy cause,” said City of Carlsbad Community Coordinator Sue Irey. “We are focusing on one-day volunteer opportunities as a way to introduce a new generation to volunteer service.”
In addition to opportunities to volunteer for city events and activities, participants will get to learn about other local organizations with volunteer opportunities. Featured non-profits include the Boys & Girls Club, San Elijo Conservancy, Sustainable Surplus and Move Your Feet before You Eat.
