For quite some time, RSVP of Central Oklahoma (Retired Senior Volunteer Program) has been connecting their volunteers with our work. It’s been neat to see some of the beautiful scarves they create. So, it was pretty exciting to be asked to join them for their 9/11 Day of Service Event.
We’re just one of several opportunities they have available that day. All are welcome to come visit with us and work with us on Monday September 11th at their location in Midwest City. We hope to see you there!
Wondering why we’re getting together on this significant day?
Here’s a bit they shared about it. We’re honored they thought to include us in their project.
It’s been more than two decades since 9/11. To honor those we lost and the heroes who helped us persevere, join AmeriCorps and 911Day.org to unite in service and do good. Together, we can strengthen our nation and inspire a new generation of civic-minded Americans on the September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance.
Americans of all ages and backgrounds are invited to join and lead 9/11 Day volunteer projects, and community events. Through service alongside our neighbors, we can build more equitable and just communities that advance racial equity, create opportunity, and foster respect for individual differences. You might even spark a passion and create relationships between communities and individuals across divides that extend past this day to inspire a lifetime of service in all Americans.”
