UPDATE: New Yorkers Turn Out For 9/11 National Day of Service

Submitted by on September 13, 2010 – 10:37 am One Comment

Last Friday, Tribal Truth covered the 9/11 National Day of Service, a day where people remember those lost in the September 11 attacks by giving back to their community. According to NY1, the 9/11 National Day of Service was an enormous success in New York City with hundreds of volunteers working in soup kitchens and serving up free meals to homeless New Yorkers.

Workers were upbeat and optimistic, and they encouraged others to create something good instead of dwelling on anger. Volunteer Diana Mercado told NY1, “I consider it pay forward. I don’t want to dwell on the past. It’s something that you’ve gotta step away from and move forward.” She was spending the day working at a soup kitchen on the Lower East Side, and by the end of the day, volunteers had distributed meals to over 700 people.

To see video from the 9/11 National Day of Service, check out NY1’s coverage at http://www.ny1.com/content/special_reports/wtc_coverage/125294/9-11-anniversary--volunteers-treat-solemn-occasion-as-a-day-of-service, and Tribal Truth would like to remind our readers that people are hungry every day, not just on September 11. Be sure and check out local volunteer opportunities all throughout the year!
