9/11 Day of Service & Remembrance Toolkit
The September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance is the culmination of an effort originally launched in 2002 by 9/11 family members and support groups, who worked to establish the charitable service day as a forward-looking way to honor the sacrifice of those who were lost and who united in response to 9/11. In 2009, Congress designated September 11th as a National Day of Service and Remembrance and charged the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) with supporting this effort across the country.
Engaging in service on and around 9/11 is an appropriate and respectful way to remember the lives of those lost, pay tribute to those who rose in service, and honor those who continue to serve our country today.
