9/11 Day of Service
OVERVIEW: September 11th is a National Day of Service and Remembrance as we honor those who lost their lives in the attack against our country in 2001 and pay tribute to the thousands of heroes who rose in service. Join L.A. Works at this Day of Service event as we support our local firefighters at the Frank Hotchkin Memorial Training Center.
IMPACT: Together, we will beautify the Frank Hotchkin Memorial Training Center for our Los Angeles emergency service heroes and create 1,000 Disaster Readiness kits for our community.
VOLUNTEER ROLES & RESPONSIBILITIES: This event will have several projects, including creating Disaster Preparedness Kits, painting indoor rooms, assembling/refurbishing tables and planter boxes, weeding, planting, and more! Volunteers may be asked to stand to work, help lift, shovel, build, and use power tools. Gloves, paint supplies, and tools will be provided for specific projects (bring your own gloves if preferred). All items for the disaster kits will be purchased in advance to ensure each kit is identical, so no donations of that kind are needed for this event.
ACCESSIBILITY: We are working to ensure that accommodations can be made for different accessibility needs for as many of the projects as possible. If you would like to bring a foldable chair for assistance, please feel free. If you have any accommodations or other questions about accessibility, please email email@example.com so we can support you in any way we can!
