Each year hundreds of young people are recognized by Prudential with their Spirit of Community Awards for volunteer service. Many of the 2011 winners plan to join the millions of Americans volunteering on Make A Difference Day this Oct. 22. Among them: Rocco Fiorentino, 14, of Vorhees, N.J., who managed to have October declared Blindness Awareness Month in 36 states. Fiorentino will be helping people, who, like himself, are visually impaired by repairing canes at a Philadelphia hospital. In South Holland, Ill., Glennita Williams,14, is organizing a Twinkie drive. On Make A Difference Day, she and hundreds of volunteers will pack up the treats, along with a handwritten letter in each box, and ship them off to troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
