Come hear 9/11 Volunteers Tonight in Speakers Series

It’s not too late to RSVP for tonight’s event at 6:30 p.m. at the 9/11 Memorial Preview Site, 20 Vesey St. (Between Church Street and Broadway). Come hear three leaders who have met the challenge of service, response and relief, and crisis counseling across the country and the globe.

Jay S. Winuk is co-founder and vice president of MyGoodDeed, the nonprofit organization that led the advocacy campaign to establish 9/11 as an annually recognized National Day of Service and Remembrance, which was signed into law by President Obama in April 2009.  On Sept. 11, 2001, Jay lost his younger brother Glenn J. Winuk, an attorney and volunteer firefighter, who was killed in the line of duty when the South Tower collapsed.  Millions of people from all 50 states and countries all over the world now mark Sept. 11 to serve people and communities in need. Also attending will be Bill Keegan of H.E.A.R.T. 911 and a member of the New York Says Thank You Foundation.

Before the evening begins, the audience will hear some remarks from Diahann Billings-Burford, the city’s chief service officer for NYC Service.
