9/11 – A National Day of Service and Remembrance

In all of the horror that we witnessed on September 11, 2001, the amazing thing we also saw was the incredible generosity, bravery, selflessness, and compassion of people from all over the country, who came together to help one another, the survivors, the victims’ families, and their communities. It was a shining ray of hope in an otherwise black and hopeless day.

In keeping with that spirit, an effort was launched in 2002 to annually honor the victims, survivors, and all those who rose up in service on 9/11 with a day of charitable service and giving, like so many did on that fateful day. Remembering the victims with charity and giving honors their memories in a way that looks forward to their future for the children and all those left behind.

Consider volunteering in your community in honor of the victims, survivors, and families of 9/11. Please take a few minutes to visit the official 9/11 Day website, look for opportunities in your area on the Serve.gov 9/11 Day page, pledge to join, and see what others around the country are doing to improve our communities in honor of those lives lost and affected by the events of 9/11.
