A Greater Cincinnati nonprofit is bringing back its Sept. 11 national day of service for the second year.
Cincinnati Cares hopes to oversee more than 300 volunteers who will work with 10 nonprofit groups on more than 30 projects on Sept. 11, according to a release. All activities will last 3 to 4 hours and offer participants the chance at hands-on volunteer experience while socially distanced.
Cincinnati Cares hosted its inaugural 9/11 Day of Service last year, with more than 100 volunteers participating, CEO Doug Bolton said in an email.
Since the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, 9/11 Day has become one of the nation’s largest annual days of charitable engagement with more than 15 million participants.
Participating organizations include:
- Sweet Cheeks Diaper Bank in Price Hill
- Emergency Shelter of Northern Kentucky in Covington
- St. Joseph Home in Sharonville
- St. Vincent de Paul in West End
- YMCA’s Camp Ernst in Burlington
- Cincinnati Community ToolBank in Roselawn
