Handmade Commemorative Card Project

Volunteer from your home to make a personalized card for local military personel and first-responders. The project aims to send over 1000 handmade cards to this community as part of the 9/11 Day of Service and Rememberance. Sign your card and mail them to DOROT, who will deliver them on your behalf.


H.E.A.R.T. 9/11 

The Healing and Emergency Response Team is a 9/11 commemorative effort that takes place all year round, from helping renovate the homes of those who served in the Iraq War to helping rebuild a local soccer center. This is an excellent opportunity for volunteers who want to provide physical labor or technical expertise. 

9/11 Memorial Museum

Visitor Services at the 9/11 Memorial is always in need of compassionate and reliable volunteers. If you are able to commit to at least 12 hours a month for 3 months, you can schedule an orientation and join a team of volunteers who have made a long-term commitment to helping visitors cope with 9/11.
