9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance
9/11 Day was created in 2002 by the nonprofit group MyGoodDeed with widespread support of the 9/11 community. The mission is to create a permanent and positive way to observe 9/11 each year. In 2009, Congress joined together with President Barack Obama to pass bipartisan legislation officially recognizing September 11 as a National Day of Service and Remembrance. Each year, more than 30 million Americans observe 9/11 by helping others, making 9/11 the single largest day of charitable activity U.S. history.
Below is a list of volunteer opportunities so you can participate in 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance.

9/11 Memorial Stair Climb
Hosted by: FirefighterAid
Saturday, September 7th
6:30am - 12:00pm
On September 11th, 2001, 403 emergency responders made the ultimate sacrifice in the performance of their sworn duty to protect life. Such sacrifices continue today. We climb for awareness of sacrifices made by firefighters every-where. Each year, approximately 100 firefighters die while serving their communities. We will climb in the spirit of remembrance of the courage and honor displayed by those 403 fallen Emergency Responders. We climb to care for the firefighters who continue to assume these risks and for the families who share them. You can participate in the stair climb or volunteer!
