Giving To Those Who Have Lost: National Day of Service & Remembrance

By: Caroline De Tino

Join hundreds of thousands of Americans volunteering all across the country this month to honor and remember those we lost on 9/11.

The 9/11 Tribute Museum will be hosting their 10th annual National Day of Service and Remembrance event. Teams of corporate volunteers and first responders will unite to build 500 bikes which will be donated to children of active-duty members of the United States military and First Responders. Over 500 employees from companies directly affected by the attack on 9/11 will also be participating in honoring those who fell during this tragic day that have and still affect family members, friends, and colleagues.

The 9/11 Tribute Museum opened in 2006 offering educational programming and a place for the 9/11 community to gather and share their stories. The museum offers a person to person history by connecting visitors to survivors, families who lost loved ones, residents and workers, police, firefighters, and rescue and recovery workers in an effort to teach the impact of 9/11 and show people the positive difference communities can make when they unite.

This event will take place at the Oculus at Westfield World Trade Center, Wednesday, September 26 and will run in two shifts: 10 AM to 12:30 PM and 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM. Get involved and sponsor a bike for a child by donating here.
