SALT LAKE CITY — Along with memorials to mark the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, many Utah communities are sponsoring a day of service.
The September 11th National Day of Service & Remembrance is the culmination of efforts that promote community service on 9/11 as an annual and forward-looking tribute to the 9/11 victims, survivors and those who rose up in service in response to the attacks. UServeUtah has a list of ideas on how to serve on the 20th anniversary of 9/11.
Many city websites have details on local projects. Volunteers can sign up for projects in their own communities at JustServe.org.
The projects range from tidying up the Jordan River Parkway in Salt Lake City to removing dead wood from fire breaks near homes. Sprucing up the grounds at the Wat Lai Buddhist Temple is one of the projects planned for the Hunter-Magna Day of Service.
Sharon Eubank, who is first counselor in the general presidency of the Relief Society of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, said it’s a wide-ranging opportunity.
“All faiths, all political persuasions, all neighborhoods, people joined together on doing something that we can care about,” she said. “Bring your family, bring your neighbors and let’s do something. Let’s show the world that we can pull ourselves together in memory of what happened on 9/11.”
I have an idea for a future in-depth report. How do I tell you about it?
