National Day of Service. Here’s how you can get involved by serving with your family or ward.
Twenty-one years ago, the United States changed forever when 2,977 people were killed in terrorist attacks. To honor the victims, every year on or around Sept. 11, everyone is invited to take part in the National Day of Service and Remembrance.
The goal of the 9/11 National Day of Service and Remembrance is to invite people “to rekindle the extraordinary spirit of togetherness and compassion that arose in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 tragedy.”
We have many projects available in our community through the next few weeks. Information on all of these projects is available at https://www.justserve.org/911dayvegas. Projects are available through September 23th.
These projects are a wonderful way to teach your children about giving back to our community, or to get together with your friends, neighbors, or coworkers to make a great contribution to non-profits organizations.
Some of the other 9/11 Day of Service projects available include:
- Park, trail, and cemetery clean-ups from Summerlin to Boulder City
- Food drives where it can be as easy as dropping off canned food
- Painting an elementary school playground
- Collecting items for several organizations — from diapers and children’s pajamas to hygiene items and household products to winter clothing
- Making fleece blankets for homeless teens
- And there are several blood drives happening throughout the Valley, as well
