Join us for the 2014 9/11 Day of Service

The third annual 9/11 Day of Service returns on Thursday, September 11, bringing a multitude of ways you and your friends can make an impact for over 30 charitable causes in the Triangle area. About the 9/11 Day of Service This year’s 9/11 Day of Service, coordinated by Activate Good in partnership with the Downtown Raleigh Alliance and the City of Raleigh, aims to engage 2,000 citizens in acts of volunteerism and kindness. Citizens will honor those lost on 9/11 by helping out with projects like beautifying schools and community centers, packaging food for those in need, and more. More than 30 causes will benefit from volunteers’ work, including but not limited to Raleigh Rescue Mission, Note in the Pocket, Urban Ministries of Wake County, Carolina Tiger Rescue, Ronald McDonald House, and Neuse Riverkeeper Foundation. Companies and groups are invited to adopt daytime service projects, and individuals are invited to register to volunteer alongside them during the day as well. Those who can’t participate in the daytime project are invited to participate in the 9/11 Day of Service Evening Commemoration and Service Projects that will conclude the day at Red Hat Amphitheater. The Evening Commemoration will kick off at 6:00 PM on Thursday, September 11. Register for projects here.

Activate Raleigh: Sweat, Blood and… Food

  While volunteering is a major theme for the 9/11 day of service, Activate Raleigh, we wanted to let you know about a few other ways you can give back that day (and leading up to it, too): Give Blood Capital Bank, one of the Activate Raleigh event corporate sponsors, is hosting a blood drive for the Triangle Area Red Cross on September 11 between 10 AM and 2:30 PM. You can make an appointment to give blood on the Red Cross site. Donate Food Leading up to Tuesday, September 11, Hibernian Pub is hosting a food drive to fill up the food pantry at Urban Ministries of Wake County! You can drop off any of the items on the  needed food list at Hibernian Pub in Raleigh or Cary or at Solas during their normal business hours. Icing on the cake? If you donate more than 6 items, they’ll give you 10% off your meal: So if you can’t make it out to volunteer on Tuesday, September 11, or you’re just feeling extra do-goodery, we hope you’ll consider contributing in these ways too!...
