HOBOKEN, NEW JERSEY, USA, September 8, 2021 / -- Hundreds of volunteers from the tri-state area will commemorate the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks by joining in patriotic acts of volunteer service as part of the September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance, commonly known as 9/11 Day.

9/11 Day is a chance to recapture the spirit of unity that swept the nation in the aftermath of 9/11, while paying tribute with acts of service to those lost on September 11, 2001, heroic first responders, and the countless others who serve to defend the nation’s freedom at home and around the globe.

Volunteers will unite with widespread compassion to help to heal the nation. This year, thousands of all ages and backgrounds will participate in service projects on September 11. Service projects will range from Back-to-School Drives, food drives and home repairs to neighborhood cleanups and disaster preparation activities. In many areas, volunteers will honor veterans, soldiers, or first responders by collecting donations, assembling care packages, and writing thank you letters.

This year, on the 20th anniversary of 9/11 we will honor, serve, and unite in this spirit.”
