This important event is one of many signature 9/11 Day-supported projects being held in observance of the 21st anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Other event locations include New York City, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Phoenix, St. Louis, San Francisco and others.
9/11 Day is now the nation’s largest annual day of charitable engagement, officially recognized under federal law. Each 9/11, nearly 30 million Americans volunteer, donate to charities, and perform other good deeds to promote national unity and empathy, in honor of the victims of 9/11 and those who rose in service in response to the attacks.
SGAD will be part of this event by making sure everything is set up and ready for the 1,000 MN volunteers who are coming into pack 185,000 meals on 9/12 for hungry families living locally!
We are looking for 15 folks to help set up: the packaging lines, equipment, signage, staging ingredients, and all that is needed to prepare the space for the next day’s activity. Some heavy lifting required.
911day.org will be donating all meals to Second Harvest Heartlandand for distribution locally.
Come be part of it!
