The annual Make A Difference for Pleasanton Festival this month is moving online because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Instead of booths set up by non-profit groups, those looking to become involved in the community are being urged to explore various organizations and their need for volunteers at The website will be active through Sept. 1.

In addition, there will be brief Zoom-based presentations by more than a dozen local nonprofits beginning at 11 a.m., Saturday, Jan. 16.
