National Day of Service and Remembrance

National Day of Service and Remembrance

Monday, September 11, 2017 is National Day of Service and Remembrance. The September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance is the culmination of efforts originally launched in 2002 by the nonprofit 9/11 Day with wide support by the 9/11 community and leading national service organizations. This effort first established the inspiring tradition of engaging in charitable service on 9/11 as an annual and forward-looking tribute to the 9/11 victims, survivors, and those who rose up in service in response to the attacks.

In the spirit of giving and in the aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, STI students and staff will be collecting supplies for cleanup buckets.  A local Brockton organization is coordinating this effort and plans to ship the buckets in about two weeks.  Students are signing up to bring in a particular item or purchase items together and/or donating $1 or $2 towards the purchase items or to help with processing.
