Each year, on 9/11 National Day of Service and Remembrance, hundreds of corporate volunteers join the 9/11 Tribute Center to participate in a rewarding, team-building service project. Our projects unite companies that have so diligently worked to rebuild and sustain Lower Manhattan. Volunteer teams engage in such positive activities as assembling bicycles for children of active military servicemen and women and creating gift packages for soldiers serving abroad.

At our fifth annual National Day of Service project, sponsored by BNY Mellon and in collaboration with the USO, 600 corporate volunteers assembled 400 bicycles to donate to children of United States military families. Soldiers from Fort Hamilton helped our teams assemble the bikes.

Bicycles were delivered to families stationed at Fort Hamilton, New York, Naval Station Norfolk, VA and families of crews of the USS NEW YORK and USS ARLINGTON, ships commissioned and named in memory of the attacks on 9/11.
