Join Make a Difference Day at Ohme Gardens

Chelan County’s Ohme Gardens is asking the public to join staff in participating in National Make a Difference Day on Oct. 22 at the gardens.

Ohme Gardens will be donating wood from trees that needed to be removed to the Wenatchee Rescue Mission, which in turn uses the wood to keep its shelter warm during the winter. Gardens and mission staff need help collecting, cutting and loading the firewood.

“This is the second time this year we will have made a donation of wood to the local rescue mission,” said Samantha Segaline, interim director of Ohme Gardens. “It’s really a win-win for us and the mission, and it’s nice knowing the wood will not be wasted but put to great use.”

National Make a Difference Day is held annually across the country on the fourth Saturday of the month. The Ohme Gardens’ effort will be underway 9 a.m. to noon on Oct. 22. No RSVPs are necessary; volunteers are encouraged to just show up at the gardens, 3327 Ohme Road in Wenatchee.

Volunteers are asked to wear sturdy shoes, gloves and long-sleeved shirts. Especially in demand are those people who own a chainsaw.

“Folks who can bring a chainsaw to use are most encouraged to help out,” Segaline said.

If you have questions, contact Ohme Gardens via its Facebook page, at info@ohmegardens.org or the office at 662-5785.
