Service Campaigns

RISE will mobilize the American community to engage in public service, especially, with service campaigns promoted by the National Corporation for Community Services

9/11 National Day of Service and Remembrance

In 2009, Congress designated September 11th as a National Day of Service and Remembrance.

The September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance is the culmination of an effort originally launched in 2002 by 9/11 family members and support groups, who worked to establish the charitable service day as a forward-looking way to honor 9/11 victims, survivors, and others who rose up in service in response to the attacks.

RISE supports this effort to honor the memory of the victims of 9/11

Martin Luther King

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?'”  Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities. The MLK Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, the President’s national call to service initiative. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems.
