In 2009 President Obama proclaimed September 11th to be a National Day of Service and Rememberance:
Working together, we can usher in a new era in which volunteering and more service is a way of life for all Americans. Deriving strength from tragedy, we can write the next great chapter in our Nation’s history and ensure that future generations continue to enjoy the promise of America.
MYD believes strongly in the importance of community service and volunteerism. We encourage everyone to spend this Saturday helping those in need and giving back to the community. Below are a couple of organizations that have activities planned for September 11th. MYD members have worked with both of these groups this year; they are wonderful organizations.
Lower East Side Ecology Center
Achilles Runnng Club
