September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance
As we approach the 18th and, almost, 20th anniversary of 9/11, the September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance would like to place a strong emphasis on unity, empathy, diversity and inclusion and bringing groups together to serve and improve our communities.
Ten years ago, when President Obama proclaimed September 11th as a National Day of Service and Remembrance, he called upon all Americans to “…join in service and honor the lives we lost [and] the heroes who responded in our hour of need...”. He went on to say that the goal is to “recapture the spirit of unity and compassion that inspired our Nation following the attacks, and rededicate ourselves to sustained service to our communities.”
Last year, the 9/11 Day Organization, with the help of community members from all around the nation, were able to pack 1 million meals for children, families, seniors, and military veterans at risk of hunger. This year with your help we hope to be able to pack 3 million!
