We are just weeks away from 9/11, marking the 17th anniversary of the terrorist attacks in America that killed 2,996 people, and injured thousands more.
In partnership with 911day.org, we will be joining hands in a day of service in New York City. We invite our listeners to sign up and volunteer to help pack 750,000 or more meals for our local food banks, alongside Greg T at The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.

Today nearly one-third of our nation’s population is under the age of 25, with little or no memories of 9/11. Many parents and teachers find it hard to explain the events of that important but tragic day to younger children.
911day.org, the nonprofit group organizes the 9/11 Day of Service also offers helpful tips on its website. Get free parent and teachers guides and lesson plans to help teach children about 9/11 in constructive ways.
