Columbia, SC (WLTX) -- For more than 20-years USA Weekend Magazine and Points of Light have joined together to sponsor Make a Difference Day.
Saturday Millions of volunteers around the world come together to improve the lives of others.
The University of South Carolina men's basketball team swapped their basketballs for paint brushes. The team joined the News 19 family as we helped Habitat for Humanity in the Midlands.
