Thousands to volunteer to honor Sept. 11 victims
NEW YORK (AP) -- Thousands of volunteers will honor Sept. 11 victims Wednesday with good deeds performed around the globe.
The anniversary of the terror attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people was designated a National Day of Service and Remembrance in 2009.
This year, a constellation of volunteer networks around the world will spread goodwill through volunteerism to honor those who died.
Public volunteer projects in New York, Dallas, Washington, D.C., and other cities will convene at firehouses and fire academies to honor first responders by painting and cleaning the facilities.
On the website 911day.org, thousands of people have pledged to perform a good deed on Sept. 11.
Among other things, people have pledged to give blood, donate books, pass out blankets at homeless shelters and volunteer at soup kitchens.
