Boston Meal Pack for 9/11 Day

Each year, millions of Americans join the call to perform acts of service on September 11, a federally-recognized National Day of Service known as “9/11 Day”. This year, the national nonprofit 9/11 Day works to inspire a spirit of unity and giving through good deeds, encouraging people of all ages to give back in their own personal way on that day. The 9/11 Day organization is also hosting large-scale meal pack events in 16 cities across the country, including Boston at the Agganis Arena. More than 600 Boston-based corporate volunteers will pack more than 200,000 meals for the Greater Boston Food Bank. According to a Greater Boston Food Bank study, 1 in 3 households in Massachusetts experienced food insecurity last year. Nationally, more than 11,000 volunteers will pack 5 million meals for local food banks. How can you get involved? Participating in 9/11 Day is simple. Community members who may not have the opportunity or ability to participate in a Meal Pack event can simply choose their own good deed or act of service. “Every act of kindness, big or small, counts,” says 9/11 Day co-founder Jay Winuk. “Be kind to a stranger, reach out to a friend, help around the house, in school, or out in your community.” 9/11 Day is asking any who participate in the observance to share their “I Will Pledge” for 9/11 Day by posting a video or caption that starts with the words “For 9/11 Day this year, I will…” and sharing their personal good deed. All are encouraged to tag @911Day, and to use the hashtags #911day and #IWillfor911Day. Visit for more information.
