Thousands of volunteers across the country came together Saturday to help improve the lives of others for Make a Difference Day.

And 9NEWS helped do its part by volunteering at Food Banks of the Rockies.

9NEWS employees and other volunteers helped box food that will eventually be sent to more than 100 food banks and pantries across Colorado.

Make a Difference Day is one of the largest annual single days of service in the country.
