The September 11 National Day of Service or 9/11 Day is a national volunteer day and annual event celebrated on September 11.
According to the lead agency's web site, the goal of 9/11 Day is "to keep alive the spirit of unity and compassion that arose in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks." The idea of making September 11 an annual, official National Day of Service and Remembrance was originally conceived in the winter of 2001 by David Paine. In the Spring of 2002 David formed a nonprofit called One Day’s Pay to promote the idea. Soon after, David was joined by Jay Winuk, who had lost his brother Glenn Winuk in the attacks at the World Trade Center. Jay became co-founder of One Day’s Pay, and in 2007, the name of the organization was changed to MyGoodDeed. In 2009, federal legislation by the United States Congress, and a subsequent Presidential Proclamation officially recognized and established September 11 as a National Day of Service and Remembrance under U.S. law, and charged the Corporation for National and Community Service with helping to support this effort across the country.
Activities by volunteers on this national day of service include painting and refurbishing homes, organizing food drives, reclaiming neighborhoods, helping communities be prepared for disasters, and organizing activities that support and honor veterans, soldiers, military families, and first responders. Participants are encouraged to use the hashtag #911Day when posting online about the day.
