9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance

 

Each year, Points of Light commemorates 9/11 National Day of Service as part of an ongoing campaign to engage people in signature events that inspire, equip, and mobilize volunteers to give back to their communities.

There are nearly 5.5 million military caregivers in the United States -- hidden heroes serving in a role that receives little recognition and acknowledgement, despite the love and attention they give daily to their injured services members. Being a caregiver can affect an individual’s health, relationships and career, and many in this role face emotional, physical and mental challenges.

This year in remembrance of 9/11, Points of Light calls together its community of changemakers to take action and improve the lives of military caregivers in the United States through home beautification and revitalization projects.
