Every New Yorker remembers where they were and what they were doing on September 11th. With the 10th anniversary coming up this year, we’re looking back, and coming up with ways to serve our city so we can move forward.
Two years ago, 9/11 was established as a National Day of Service. Every year since 9/11, New York Cares has dispatched volunteers throughout the city to serve in honor of those affected by the attacks. Leading up to the day, we’re collecting stories about volunteerism. Did you donate blood, supplies or help out in some other way? Have you been involved in volunteer projects in memory of those we’ve lost? Even small gestures make a big difference, and we want to hear how you helped out your fellow New Yorkers and the city we all call home.
Send us pictures, stories or videos of you volunteering on 9/11, and we’ll post them on Facebook, Twitter and maybe even the home page. We can’t wait to hear about how you’ve made a difference in New York City.
