Students of Attleboro High School’s School Leadership class are organizing “Project 9/11,” a project where people of all ages can pledge to donate one hour of community service to commemorate the tenth anniversary of September 11th 2001 and the spirit of volunteerism that followed.
The project’s mission is to: “Act as one nation to remember one day and commemorate the 10th anniversary of 9/11/01 by donating 911 hours of service at the hands of 911 individuals and help families affected by the events on September 11th, 2001 by donating money raised to non-profit groups with the same goals”.
Individuals who take the pledge to serve are asked to commit one hour of community service before September 11th and email their service experiences to the project email or post their experience on the Project 9/11 facebook page. Project organizers will also be selling Project 9/11 stickers and t-shirts to raise money for the 9/11 Memorial in NYC and Tuesday’s Children. Tuesday’s Children is a non-profit organization that works with the children impacted by the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.
“I think project 911 is a great way to reflect upon how much people truly cared then, and how much they still care today.”
