9/11 Day of Service to Activate One Million Acts of Service

Jun 10, 2011

Sept. 11, 2011, marks the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, as well as a federally recognized National Day of Service and Remembrance.

In observation of this important and historic milestone, our country will pay tribute by participating in the single-largest expression of charitable service in American history.

To build 9/11 into a significant annual catalyst for ongoing citizen engagement and create a legacy that honors the victims and those who rose to service in response to the attacks, this year’s goal is to create one million acts of service. Signature service projects will be held in Boston, New York City, San Francisco and Washington, D.C., and special events will be held in 20 additional cities, along with thousands of independent projects throughout the country.
