Volunteer and Serve

Here are some ways to honor the memory of those who were killed on September 11, 2001:

Participate in the National Day of Service and Remembrance
Since 2001, individuals and organizations have responded to 9/11 with service and volunteer efforts, many supporting the philanthropic wishes and interests of those killed on 9/11. In 2009, this work was formally acknowledged and supported with the establishment of the September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance. Organized by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNRS), a federal agency, the official page can be found here: serve.gov/sept11.asp. Download tool kits for the National Day of Service and Remembrance that offer resources for “do-it-yourself” and age-appropriate discussions around service and 9/11.

9/11 Day is a nonprofit organization and partner of the 9/11 Memorial & Museum dedicated to keeping alive the spirit of unity and compassion that arose in response to the 9/11 attacks. The organization promotes the annual observance of September 11 as a day of charitable service and doing good deeds.
