Riverside 9/11 Citywide Day of Service

Published: 08/16/2017

September 11, 2017 marks the 16th Anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks. Annually, the City of Riverside, together with various organizations, has coordinated the Riverside Citywide 9/11 Day of Service to thank our fire and police personnel for the commitment to our community. During it’s first year alone, organizers hosted blood drives, CPR training stations, served meals for over 400 fire and police personnel, raised over $2,000 for our police and fire association and had over 300 residents volunteer for the 9/11 Day of Service. 

Please join us for a public Opening Ceremony on Monday, September 11, 2017 at 9:11 a.m. at Riverside City Hall (3900 Main Street, Riverside, CA 92522) and a public Closing Ceremony at 6 p.m. at La Sierra University (4500 Riverwalk Pkwy, Riverside, CA 92505).

We will also be honoring 9/11 Ground Zero Clean-up personnel by asking residents to organize a clean-up in their neighborhood, school, or street. We ask that you participate/organize a clean-up in your area and post your picture with #Riverside911DayofService and/or #ILoveRiverside.

The Riverside 9/11 Citywide Day of Service is intended to bring together the community and honor those that provide service to our residents. For more information, please visit the Facebook event page.
