Remember 9/11 Victims by Volunteering
Last year, 30 million volunteers partnered with MyGoodDeed, to remember 9/11 victims on the National Day of Service and Remembrance. The southern California-based non-profit helped establish the national service day alongside the Obama administration.
You can commemorate 9/11 by volunteering with two key organizations. Find a local project, or set up one at the following websites:
- the federal Corporation for National and Community Service's United We Serve 9/11 website
- MyGoodDeed's 9/11 Day site
You can also celebrate the 9/11 Patriot Day, not to be confused with the Revolutionary War's Patriot's Day, by joining a memorial 5K run in a nearby city.
The events will take place between September 7th and 28th in 12 U.S. cities, with registration fee at $35. Proceeds will benefit charities such as the Voices of September 11th and Wounded Warriors. For more information or to register, sign up here.
