9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance
Join the regional 9/11 Day as part of the largest Day of Service in America
SAN RAFAEL, CA, September 6, 2016 – Center for Volunteer & Nonprofit Leadership (CVNL) is spearheading the regionally coordinated effort for 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance. 9/11 Day is the largest annual Day of Service in the United States with more than 40 million Americans volunteering.
In partnership with Points of Light, North Bay Veterans Resource Center, Operation with Love from Home, and Veterans Home of California of Yountville, CVNL has designed volunteer projects to show our community’s support, recognition and appreciation for service members’ sacrifices on behalf of our country. The focus of 9/11 Day of Service & Remembrance is volunteer participation involving projects that support our troops, veterans, first responders and disaster preparedness as part of local outreach and a national service movement.
9/11 Santa Rosa Project – September 9, 2016
CVNL is helping the North Bay Veterans Resource Center with two projects at the Hearn House in Santa Rosa. The Hearn House provides supportive services to low-income veteran families transitioning into permanent housing. Temporary housing, case management as well as individual and group therapy are just a few of the services offered to support veterans throughout their transition into permanent housing. Join CVNL in beautifying the grounds by helping with general landscaping. We will also build a shed for temporary storage of veterans’ belongings.
9/11 Napa Project – September 11, 2016
CVNL is engaging community members via on-site volunteer projects at the various Napa locations. Volunteers will assemble 200+ military appreciation care packages to be sent to U.S. military personnel serving around the world. The care packages will include: protein bars, healthy snacks, instant oatmeal, ramen noodles, snack crackers, lip balm, foot powder, eye drops, shampoo, conditioner, band aids, sunscreen, crossword puzzles, playing cards, and a personalized card.
Everyone is welcome to join these volunteer projects and make a profound impact in the veteran community. To sign up, visit volunteer.cvnl.org
