For more than 10 years, the University of Arizona’s Eller College of Management has worked to unite past, present and future Wildcats with the Tucson community to encourage volunteerism and evoke change through the Make A Difference Day, an event spearheaded by the 400-level management students. This year, the two-day event takes place Friday, October 19 and Saturday, October 20, and is expected to draw between 800 and 1,100 volunteers to help beautify and improve the community of Tucson and its residents.


Eller College Make A Difference Day partners with United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona, and other organizations to provide volunteer services that include school beautification such as building gardens, cleaning and organizing; street clean up; spending time with residents at St. Luke’s Home assisted living community; and helping other organizations prepare for events such as Reid Park Zoo’s Boo at the Zoo, All Souls Procession of Angels, and the Tucson Classics Car Show — a Rotary Club of Tucson fundraiser. For those that enjoy working with children and animals, the Therapeutic Ranch for Animals and Kids, and Pima Animal Care Center are also among the organizations that will be receiving volunteer services during Eller College Make a Difference Day.


Each day at 9:00 a.m., the event kicks off at the Estes Atrium of McClelland Hall where participants can check-in, pick up their volunteer t-shirt and then enjoy breakfast and a lively pep rally including music, and just maybe a visit from the beloved University of Arizona’s Wildcat mascots, Wilbur and Wilma! At 9:45 a.m. volunteers depart to their assignments where they will typically assist until approximately 1:00 p.m. or 2:00 p.m. each afternoon.


Students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends are encouraged to volunteer their time with the Make A Difference movement, and can register via Donations can also be made toward the cause on the site. For more information, email Caitlin Barner at
