City’s flagship event lends residents' muscle.
On October 25th, Santa Clarita residents will lend a helping
hand to 32 projects across the SCV.
All the effort is a part of Make A Difference Day, which
rounds up volunteers each year to work together, making our town a better place
Over 1,100 residents have already committed to donate their
Saturdays to the cause, which will take place at 43 locations across town. The
event is sponsored by Hands On Santa Clarita (HOSC).
“This is extremely gratifying to all of us who serve on the
Board for HOSC”, indicated Wade Reynolds, Board President. “For the last eight years the number of
projects and volunteers has continued to increase. “Knowing that over this many SCV residents
want to donate their time and talents proves how special this community is”.
This year Boston Scientific Neuromodulation is serving as
the presenting sponsor for Make A Difference Day. “As one of the largest employers in the Santa
Clarita Valley, we owe it to our community to give back”, stated Michael
Onuscheck, Senior Vice President, Boston
Scientific & President, Neuromodulation, who is serving as Honorary

Difference Day touches the foundation of our community and strengthens its
future. We are very proud to be the
