September 11 is a National Day of Service and Remembrance. Here are several ways you can get involved:
9/11 Day at Home with the Volunteer Center
This virtual volunteering effort encourages everyone to do a good deed on 9/11 (or anytime during the month of September). These impactful good deeds are easy for you to do individually or with your family and friends right at home. Here’s how to get involved!
- Choose your deed. Starting September 3, 2020, visit 911day.org. There will be a list of over 50 “good deeds” you can do for 9/11 Day. These include great ideas for families with children. Think of these ideas as thought-starters. Feel free to plan your own good deeds based on your interests.
- Perform your deed. We encourage you to perform your good deed or service project on 9/11 itself, but you can do it anytime in September (preferably).
- Share your deed(s)! Students can complete this online reflection form and the Volunteer Center will send them a thank you item for their good deed.
