Public Service Announcement from the City of Riverside's Facebook Page:
September 11, 2018 marks the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks. Annually, the City of Riverside, together with various organizations 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, we 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.
We will be honoring our 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 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.
Is your family planning a way to honor those lost 17 years ago? Please share with me what you are doing today!
