TAMIU’s Make a Difference Day
Observance Concludes Saturday

Texas A&M International University’s  (TAMIU) week-long celebration of Make a Difference Day, a nationwide effort to unite people in one day of service to make a difference in their communities, concludes Saturday.

On Saturday, Oct. 25 from 8 a.m. – 12 noon, TAMIU student volunteers will help re-energize the Ruthe B. Cowl Rehabilitation Center by painting the Kid’s Therapy Room, washing playground walls, cleaning and painting the garden area and providing shelving for equipment in the Adult Therapy Wing.

On Monday, TAMIU signed an historic Memorandum of Agreement establishing service opportunities aiding local agencies by enhancing student learning and development with the partner non-profit organizations.
