FY 2015 September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance Grants

Executive Summary

In 2002, family members who lost loved ones in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks as well as support groups and other organizations began to seek forward-looking tributes to honor the sacrifice of those who were lost and honor to those who rose in service in response to the tragedy. Encouraging Americans to participate in service and remembrance activities on the anniversary of 9/11 anniversary is a productive and respectful way to honor those who perished and rekindle the spirit of unity and compassion that swept our nation after 9/11 to help meet the challenges we face today.

Because of efforts to build support for this idea, September 11 was designated The September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance by the 2009 Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act.

Along with the Corporation for National & Community Service (CNCS), Williams-Mobley Inc., would like to encourage its community and those surrounding to honor those lost to the tragic events of 9/11 and to sponsor educational and community-building events to commemorate this National Day of Service and Remembrance with appreciation and service by hosting a "Thank a Veteran Day". Some of the service events will include cleaning our community, planting memorial gardens, selecting/ drawing several military families to supply a garden for at their home, collecting canned goods for donate to veteran and military families. This "Thank a Veteran Day" will essentially be made up of service, donations, and appreciation (through cards, food, music, and fun) for our veterans and military families.
