In 2009, Congress designated September 11th as a National Day of Service and Remembrance and charged the Corporation for National and Community Service with helping to support this effort across the country. The September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance established the inspiring tradition of Americans engaging in charitable service on 9/11 as an annual and forward-looking tribute to the victims, survivors, and those who rose up in service in response to the attacks.
The North Country Regional Volunteer Center located at the United Way of the Adirondack Region, Inc. held a food drive to benefit non-profit agencies through out Clinton, Essex, and Franklin Counties in remembrance of 9/11.
Agencies that benefited include: Adirondack Community Action Program (ACAP), Comlinks Community Action Program, Family Champions of the North Country, and Joint Council of Economic Opportunity (JCEO).
The food drive was a success! A couple hundred food items were donated by concerned residents through workplace collections and individual givers. A colossal thank you goes out to all the citizens that contributed to the success of the food drive. The generous outpouring of support is what makes our region a COMMUNITY!
