September 11th Day of Service and Remembrance

Alachua Habitat for Humanity is proud to plan and execute its second annual Sept. 11 memorial event. Join us as we recognize the sacrifice of those lost and injured in the 2001 terrorist attacks, and pay tribute to the many that rose in service in response to the attacks. 

Ultimately, we want something positive to come from the sacrifices made. As Americans all over the United States, we want to forever remember and keep alive the spirit of unity that arose in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks. 

This year we are working collaboratively with the University of Florida Habitat Student Chapter to host a public Day of Remembrance on the University of Florida Campus at the J. Wayne Reitz Union Breezeway. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear keynote speakers such as State Representative Keith Perry, Captain Bill Pokorny, and more. 

We hope to see you there!

WHEN: Thursday, September 11 at 12 p.m.
WHERE: J.Wayne Reitz Union Breezeway

A two-day “Brush with Kindness” service project will follow the event, which encourages volunteers to come together to refurbish two homes. You can sign up now to participate in this day of service. Learn more... Continue Reading
