MINNEAPOLIS -- Saturday was a beautiful day to get out and volunteer on Make a Difference Day!

For 24 years, volunteers have been uniting on Make a Difference Day, all for one purpose: To improve the lives of others.

The day has grown into one of the largest annual single days of service nationwide.

In Minneapolis, hundreds of volunteers prepared more than 2,500 meals at Open Arms for people living with life-threatening illnesses.
