Voices from the 9/11 community
"We can’t bring our loved ones back. But perhaps in tribute, we can work to rekindle the spirit of unity that arose in the aftermath of the attacks."
"We wanted something positive to come from the loss of so many innocent people in such a terrible way. We didn't want the terrorists to forever define how 9/11 would be remembered."
"I can’t tell you what it means to me as a family member who lost someone on 9/11 to have people out there after 17 years who care enough to show up and do service on this day."
"As a volunteer firefighter and attorney, my brother Glenn lived his life – and died – in service to others. Making 9/11 a day of doing good deeds reflects the way he lived his life. He’d welcome this kind of observance."
“Don't ever forget these days, boys. We came in as individuals. And we'll walk out together.”
Help Us Pack Millions of Meals For COVID Relief
On September 11, 2020, we plan to pack millions of meals for COVID relief.
On 9/11 Day this year, we are working to organize COVID-19 safe volunteer projects to pack meals for people in need.
Two friends, one who lost his brother on September 11, dedicated the past 17 years of their lives to transforming 9/11 into a day of unity and doing good.
9/11 Day has grown to become the nation's largest day of charitable service in the U.S.
