What Exactly Will I Be Doing? 

Following a ceremony paying tribute to the 15th anniversary of the ultimate service from emergency responders on September 11, 2001, volunteers will break out into service site groups to volunteer in our local communities.

Volunteers are encouraged to come ready to make a difference and are recommended to dress in comfortable layers that they don’t mind getting dirty. Closed-toe shoes or sneakers are required. Service will occur rain or shine. Hats, long pants, and weather-appropriate dress are recommended for outdoor sites.
