Dear City and County Leaders,
Since established by Congress in 2009, the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) has been proud to lead the federally-recognized September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance (9/11 Day), focusing on a day of unity, empathy and service for all Americans in tribute to those injured and lost on September 11, 2001. It is now the nation’s largest annual day of charitable engagement, when millions of Americans will pledge their time and talents on September 11th, and the days leading up to it, to volunteer projects and charitable work in honor of our Nation's fallen heroes.
As in years past, we anticipate service and remembrance activities in all 50 states, during which there will be opportunities for volunteers to paint and refurbish homes, participate in food drives, spruce up schools, reclaim neighborhoods, and honor veterans, soldiers, military families, and first responders.
Here is how you and your constituents can participate in this National Day of Service and Remembrance:
