HandsOn Santa Clarita’s 9/11 Day of Service postponed

HandsOn Santa Clarita, a nonprofit volunteer center, typically hosts its annual 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance to both pay tribute to the victims and honor those who began their service in response to the attacks the weekend before Sept. 11.

This year, due to a restructuring in the organization, they have postponed their service day until November.

In the time following the Sept. 11 attacks, the nation came together to serve, which is why they have created this event to give the local community an opportunity to show their support and gratitude. 

Volunteers split up into groups to complete service projects at various locations in the Santa Clarita Valley, such as the Castaic Animal Care Center, the city of Santa Clarita’s fire restoration or tree planting projects, Help the Children, Domestic Violence Center, William S. Hart baseball and softball, or care packages for military and first responders.

Those interested in volunteering are required to pre-register online, and those who can’t volunteer, but still want to contribute, can make donations for care packages by contacting HandsOn for a list of needed items. 

More details regarding the Day of Service planned for November will be released as they become available.
