From: Volunteer New York

As we reflect on our annual 9/11 Serve and Remember event, we are grateful for the outpouring of community spirit and collective effort.

In the wake of 9/11, countless acts of kindness shined throughout our community, setting forth a chain of compassion and unity. These acts still resonate today, stirring hearts, sparking dialogues, and driving many to seek opportunities to serve and make a difference.

What's even more inspiring is the growth in our community participation from last year. This year, 728 volunteers dedicated their time and energy, significantly rising from 466 in 2022. Collectively, we clocked in 1,024 hours of service, surpassing last year's 876 hours.

The 9/11 Serve and Remember event is a testament to our collective strength and dedication. It serves as a solemn reminder of our ties to one another, our lost heroes, and our unwavering commitment to community service. Thank you for being a part of this journey and ensuring that the spirit of unity and service lives on.
