Volunteers paint Disabled American Veterans office for 9-11 Day of Service

Post Date:09/09/2016 1:28 PM
  • Lead Approximately 60 volunteers have painted the Disabled American Veterans office, 655 N. Gilbert Road, as part of the City of Mesa's 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance.

Approximately 60 volunteers painted the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) office, 655 N. Gilbert Road, this morning as part of the City of Mesa’s 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance. The National Day of Service and Remembrance is inspired by the remarkable spirit of service that emerged in the wake of a tremendous tragedy.

A variety of community groups and individuals assisted with the painting project. Before they began working, the volunteers gathered for a moment of silence to remember the 9/11 victims. The event was part of Love Your Block, a high-impact service strategy and partnership in which community members are engaged in revitalizing their neighborhoods one block at a time.

Performing volunteer services for people in need as part of this day of service is a tribute to the many that rose in service in response to the attacks – our firefighters and emergency medical technicians, public safety officers, rescue and recovery workers, volunteers and the men and women in the armed forces.
