For the last few weeks, we've been discussing how and why you should serve on the September 11th
National Day of Service and Remembrance. Now with 9/11 Day just around the corner, it's time to roll
up your sleeves, get out there, and serve!
Making time to volunteer for the September 11th Day of Service is a great way to engage with your community while honoring the victims and survivors of 9/11. Service knows no bounds, age, or ability. And you will likely find that most projects in your area will welcome and accommodate any and all who are ready to participate.
Whether you pick up a shovel at a community cleanup, grab a paintbrush at a local school, swing a hammer and make repairs for a neighbor in need, or collect canned goods for a food drive, we hope you will join the thousands of other Americans serving their country for 9/11 Day.
Just remember these three ideas to make your 9/11 Day a productive one:
Connect: Looking for a way to participate in your area? Sign up for a project near you and volunteer alongside the thousands of Americans who are making time to better their communities, and honor the victims and families of 9/11.
Plan: Want to plan your own project? It's never too late! Get started by watching the CNCS online webinar and turn those thoughts into action.
Dedicate: Already connected to a project? Take a moment to dedicate your service on 9/11, and spread the word about why you are serving or for whom you choose to serve.
