Tuesday will mark the 10th annual 9/11 Day, a non-profit movement to observe September 11 as a day of charitable service and good deeds.

This year organizations across the country are planning special volunteer events and everyone is welcome to get involved. In Virginia, all 35 state parks have special events and, in Fort Worth volunteers will remember those lost on 9/11 by serving at a local women’s treatment center.

In NYC more than 200 people will help out at a residential housing facility for veterans and, in Minneapolis, volunteers will sort, package and label food donations.

To see a full list of events, visit missioncontinues.org/events.

If you can't participate in 9/11 Day but still want to support the cause, you can make a $5 donation by texting DEED to 85944.
