About This Event

Our local call to action for the September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance.

Each year, with the support of local businesses, Activate Good coordinates a Triangle-wide 9/11 Service & Remembrance event to mark the anniversary of September 11, 2001 and honor those lost with volunteer service. We engage thousands of volunteers to serve the Triangle community through a menu of service projects. Service projects benefit a variety of Activate Good’s Community Partners and other local causes; tasks range from clearing new hiking trails to crafting helpful items for sheltered pets to packaging food for those in need – and much, much more.

This initiative has taken several forms – from single days, weekends, or whole months and includes both virtual and in-person opportunities. Many years have also featured our signature Commemoration Event, complete with guest speakers, music, and additional family-friendly service projects.

Each summer, Activate Good begins matching volunteer groups to appropriate projects in July, and posts public opportunities online as they become available in August.
