September 11 National Day of Service & Remembrance: Honoring through Service

September 11 National Day of Service & Remembrance

As a positive way to forever remember and pay tribute to the victims of September 11, honor those that rose in service in response to the attacks, and to remind people of the importance of working more closely together to improve our world, the Michigan Community Service Commission (MCSC) will be observing September 11, 2016 as a National Day of Service and Remembrance. We invite you to serve, honor, and remember alongside us on this historic day. 

About September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance: 

The September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance is the culmination of an effort originally launched in 2002 by 9/11 family members and support groups. It became officially recognized following the passage of the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act of April 2009.   

MCSC plans to offer grants for 9/11 Day service projects in 2017. Please check back for updates.
