The Make a Difference Day Halloween Festival is aimed at kids ages 3-12 and will take place from 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. in the Benham-Pence Student Center, the New Residence Hall and in the Joseph C. Shouvlin Center for Lifelong Learning. The festival includes various Halloween-themed activities, and costumes are definitely encouraged. Many of the volunteers, who will lead the children through the activities, are members of Wittenberg's fraternities and sororities, and leaders in the university's Student Senate.

This day of giving is part of the annual nationwide celebration that occurs every year on the fourth Saturday of October. Wittenberg has participated in the celebration for many years, but this will be the third straight year that the day of giving will be Halloween-themed and focused on giving back to children in the Springfield area.
"With more than 75 kids in attendance at last year's Make a Difference Day Halloween Festival, we are hoping to host a fun-filled day this year for even more kids while providing an opportunity for students at Wittenberg to interact with members of the Springfield community," said student organizer Kara Kavalec, class of 2009 from Lorain, Ohio.
To register, visit the Wittenberg Community Service Web site or call the office at (937) 327-7523. Online registration will be available starting Wednesday, Oct. 8.
