9/11 National Day of Service and Remembrance

Friday, September 11th

The 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance was created to offer a positive way to pay tribute and remember the victims, survivors and first responders who served in response to the attacks.  This also serves as a reminder of the importance of working together to help improve our community.  

This year United Way Suncoast is coordinating multiple service projects to bring together volunteers in our region:  

Hillsborough County

From 9am-11:30am, volunteers will create a “First Responders Peace Garden” at The Franciscan Center that will provide their retreat guests with a place for quiet reflection, meditation, and stillness.  Click here to register.

Manatee County

From 9am-12pm, volunteers will support the work of Turning Points by creating personal hygiene kits for our homeless community. Click here to register.

Pinellas County

From 9am-11am, volunteers will gather at Bay Pines VA Healthcare System to complete a variety of tasks that may include cleanup of the shoreline, plant bed maintenance, weeding and cleaning, washing golf carts and transportation vehicles, or other.  Click here to register.
