9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance


This year, Points of Light commemorated the 15th anniversary of 9/11 National Day of Service as part of an ongoing campaign to engage people in signature events that inspired, equipped, and mobilized volunteers to give back to their communities.

More than 15,000 volunteers nationwide came together in over 30 community events, and more than 7,000 people have told their stories through #HonoringService on #911Day. Join in telling your story today!
