9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance

 

Each year, Points of Light commemorates 9/11 National Day of Service as part of an ongoing campaign to engage people in signature events that inspired, equipped, and mobilized volunteers to give back to their communities.

On September 10, 2016, more than 15,000 volunteers nationwide came together in over 30 community events, and more than 7,000 people have told their stories through #HonoringService on #911Day. Join in telling your story today!
