Communities Foundation of Texas commemorates 9/11 as part of nationwide day of service

Written by Mindia Whittier

The annual observance was established in 2002 to transform the anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks into a day of service, unity and peace.

More than 1,000 volunteers recently helped pack over 150,000 meals for people in North Texas as part of a National Day of Service and Remembrance to recognize the 21st anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

Communities Foundation of Texas‘ CFT for Business partnered with 9/11 Day, Kids Around the World, and volunteers representing local companies, sponsors, partners, and community organizations at the 9/11 Day Dallas Meal Pack.

9/11 Day’s ongoing mission is to transform the annual remembrance into a worldwide day of unity and doing good. It encourages millions of people to remember and pay tribute each 9/11 through the spirit of unity and good deeds.

Volunteers gathered at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center Arena for two meal pack shifts.
