September 11th National Day of Service & Remembrance
As part of the national movement to preserve September 11th as a day of service and remembrance, Jersey Cares facilitated volunteer projects for 800 volunteers at 10 different sites over two days of service in 2016. These volunteer opportunities placed a special focus on New Jersey towns that experienced the greatest loss of life on September 11th, 2001. Volunteers honored those affected by the events of September 11th through projects such as landscaping, food sorting, mural painting, indoor clean-ups, and brightening walls with fresh coats of paint. Through these projects, volunteers worked to make our communities stronger on a day that was intended to tear them apart. Information for our 2017 September 11th Week of Service & Remembrance will be available in July 2017. Please contact Jennifer Lewellen to learn more. 973-533-1993.
