Honor Service on 9/11 by Hosting a Volunteer Service Project

Sept. 11 marks a day to commemorate tragedy and triumph, recognize heroism and sacrifice, and inspire volunteer service that makes a difference in communities.

This year, Points of Light's Military Initiatives is inviting organizations to join a national service movement in cities across the country by hosting “Honoring Service” projects on the 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance. To support this effort, Points of Light will provide mini-grants of $1,500 - $4,000 to 20 organizations.

Applications must be submitted by Aug. 6 at 8 p.m. Eastern to communityblueprint@pointsoflight.org. For more information, review the project overview, FAQ and host site application here
