Volunteerism since 9/11, RSVP now for latest lecture

The "9/11, Today and Tomorrow" speaker series has returned  for another installment at the 9/11 Memorial Preview Site, 20 Vesey St. (Between Church Street and Broadway). Join Jay Winuk of MyGoodDeed, Bill Keegan of H.E.A.R.T. 911, and a member of the New York Says Thank You Foundation for a discussion covering how volunteerism in the U.S. increased  after 9/11 and inspired President Obama to declare Sept. 11 a National Day of Service. The three organizations and their leaders have met the challenge of service, response and relief, and crisis counseling across the country and the globe. Come hear their stories: 6:30 p.m., Wed., Dec. 8 Due to limited space, it’s highly recommended that you RSVP online at A suggested donation of $10 per person will help support ongoing programming.
