United through Service

It’s been more than 20 years since 9/11. We continue to honor the sacrifices made that day by remembering the heroes, armed forces, first responders, and countless others’ acts of service to defend our nation’s freedom.  

On the September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance, we invite you to cross divides, differences, and ideologies to come together in service to honor those lost and those whose lives were forever changed that fateful day. Lift each other up, neighborhood by neighborhood, just as Americans did more than 20 years ago, united to serve. 

You can help us spark a passion and create relationships between communities and individuals  that extend past this day to inspire a lifetime of service in all Americans.  

The 9/11 Day of Service is Monday, September 11. You and your partners are encouraged to engage in service on this day and the days surrounding.
