9/11 Day of Service

On September 11, 2001, many lost their lives to the 9/11 attacks. In the days, weeks, and months following the attacks, untold numbers of people demonstrated that what unites us is greater than what divides us. 

All across America, people stepped forward to volunteer, and donate whatever they could to help the families of those lost, assist the injured, and support the many brave heroes.

We remember and honor the sacrifices made that day and the sacrifices that continue to be made by members of our armed forces, emergency responders and their families by uniting through service and volunteerism throughout our community.

We invite Salt Lakers to honor those heroes by joining in service and volunteerism throughout our City.
