MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – People will stop to remember those that died 11 years ago Tuesday in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on New York.
Sept. 11 is also a day to inspire millions of people across the country to come together and perform good deeds. Tuesday morning at Second Harvest Heartland, people will be encouraged to donate their time as part of the Sept. 11 Day of Service.
Volunteers will prepare and package food that will go to people in need across Minnesota. According to Second Harvest Heartland, more than 500,000 people used their services last year. Officials with the non-profit said Tuesday they expect hundreds to come out and lend a hand.
“We remember 9.11 and think about so many complex emotions even 11 years later, and I think of the most noble emotions is just that desire to improve our community and we are very pleased to be a part of that,” said Rob Zeaske, the CEO of Second Harvest Heartland.
Registration for the 9/11 Day of Service starts at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.
