9/11 National Day of Service Event

In honor of 9/11 Day, a National Day of Service, the Office of Spiritual Life and Service Learning is hosting an “I WILL” campaign on Tuesday, September 11 from 9:00 am–7:00 pm on the MTCC Bridge. The “I WILL” statements will serve as an informal commitment to service and remembrance of 9/11.

We will be making a paper chain of “I WILL” statements filled out by students, faculty, and staff. Please join us on the Bridge to add your “I WILL” statement to the chain. If you are unable to join us then, you can fill out your I WILL statement at 911day.org.

9/11 Day is the international non-profit movement to observe September 11 every year as a day of charitable service and doing good deeds. This observance was created soon after 9/11 to provide a positive way to forever remember and pay tribute to the 9/11 victims, honor those that rose in service in response to the attacks, and remind people of the importance of working more closely together in peace to improve our world. Today millions participate annually by taking time out on 9/11 to help others in need, in their own way.
