9/11 Day of Service & Remembrance



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. The 9/11 charitable service day was established as a forward-looking way to honor 9/11 victims, survivors, and others who rose up in service in response to the attacks.

In 2009, Congress designated September 11th as a National Day of Service and Remembrance and charged the Corporation for National and Community Service with supporting this effort across the country.

For the 10th Anniversary of 9/11 in 2011, 33 million people spent the day helping others and 700,000 people volunteered. This year, September 11th is an opportunity for National Service programs to host events and service projects to help citizens honor the day with service and highlight the impact of service in Montana communities.
