9/11 Day of Service: Paying Tribute through Volunteerism

September 8, 2011 - Article reads in

The tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001, will never be forgotten – and with the help of volunteers across the country, the 10-year commemoration will be remembered for helping to build even stronger communities in remembrance.

To honor those who lost their lives that day, nonprofit organizations MyGoodDeed and HandsOn Network are leading the single largest day of charitable service in United States history – the 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance. Their mission inspires a hopeful way to honor and remember 9/11 victims, survivors and the many who continue to serve our country after the tragedy – first responders, volunteers, recovery workers, peace officers and members of our military.

Volunteers across the country – including our own Target team members – will band together on service projects, such as renovating veterans’ homes, planting community gardens and building new school playgrounds. These projects will provide positive reminders of our nation’s resilience and strength.
