A Day of Service

9/11 Day is the largest annual day of charitable engagement in the United States. Each year more than 40 million Americans, and many others in 150 countries observe September 11 by performing good deeds that help others. The goal of 9/11 Day is to keep alive the spirit of unity and compassion that arose in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, providing a positive, helpful way for people to annually remember the 9/11 victims, and honor those that rose in service in response to the attacks.

For the 15th anniversary of 9/11, 9/11 Day will sponsor a large scale meal packaging project in New York City. In total, we intend to pack more than 500,000 healthy meals for at-risk children, seniors, veterans and the homeless in the local communities.

We will incorporate moments of silence in the 8AM hour, and feature special guests during each volunteer shift. The project will work to promote unity, diversity, and togetherness, bringing together people young and old, of all races and faiths, to work together in remembrance of 9/11.

You can get involved by registering to volunteer with us on 9/11 or by talking about the event with your friends:
