More than 3,500 individuals – including first responders, veterans and the business community – will join together in Mobile, Ala., on the 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance to support those who protect us in times of emergency and learn the best ways to help the community prepare for a disaster. Points of Light is supporting this effort, and thousands of others across the country, to honor those lost and those who rose in service after the 2001 attacks.
