Fall Days of Service!

9/11 Remembrance Day of Service: I Remember, I Serve

Date: Fri. Sept 11, 2015
Time: 8am-5pm
Description: 9/11 Day is the largest annual day of charitable engagement in the United States. Each year more than 40 million Americans, and many others in 150 countries observe September 11 by performing good deeds that help others. The goal of 9/11 Day is to keep alive the spirit of unity and compassion that arose in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, providing a positive, helpful way for people to annually remember and pay tribute to the 9/11 victims, and honor those that rose in service in response to the attacks. We encourage everyone to observe 9/11 this year by putting aside their differences if any, joining together to help those most in need, and working more closely to make our world better and more peaceful.
