Remembering September 11 Through Community Service
How will you serve?
Today people across the country will volunteer locally in remembrance of the tragedy of September 11, 2001.
From volunteering at shelters to donating blood, the focus today is on helping others. What will you do to participate in local charity campaigns?
In addition to church and school events honoring the memory of September 11, there are many other ways to get involved. Check out the Montgomery County community service website here for a list of ways to help out.
In Gaithersburg, Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot will make a special appearance as a volunteer at Manna Food Center.
The American Red Cross regularly accepts donations at the Gaithersburg Blood Donation Center, 501 N. Frederick Avenue, and in Rockville at 11820 Parklawn Drive. Call 1-800-RED CROSS to make an appointment.
