In observance of Sept. 11, 2001, University of West Florida students are participating in this year’s 9/11 National Day of Service by volunteering their time at eight local area nonprofit organizations. The service day will begin tomorrow, Sept. 11 at 8:15 a.m.
9/11 Day is the nation’s largest annual day of charitable engagement. Last year, more than 47 million people across the U.S. and in 150 countries observed Sept. 11 by performing good deeds that helped others. The goal of 9/11 Day is to provide a positive way for all people 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. Many UWF students and organizations are taking this opportunity to expand their passion for volunteering.
