9/11 Day of Service
Join the 20th Anniversary of 9/11 National Day of Service. Explore opportunities to volunteer with your SVA Chapter in cities across the United States.
Dear SVA Community,
The 20th anniversary of the 9/11 tragedies has become a National Day of Service, known as “9/11 Day.”
9/11 Day is a time when Americans are asked to join together in unity, remember those lost, and if possible, perform good deeds or other acts of service as a positive tribute to the 9/11 victims, as well as first responders and military personnel who rose in service in response to the attacks.
This year, Student Veterans of America is contributing to 9/11 Day’s goal to inspire Americans and others to perform 20 million good deeds in remembrance and tribute for the 20th anniversary of 9/11.
SVA would like to encourage you to participate. It’s easy:
- From September 1 through September 12, visit this page to log service hours.
- Reach out to your local chapter to find ways to get involved.
- Browse the outstanding service opportunities and “good deeds” you’ll find at 911day.org.
- Pick an activity that inspires you or come up with your own good deed or charitable service projects for 9/11. Then complete it and log your activity in the tracker below.
- Share your good deed or activity on social media. Include the hashtags #SVA911Day, and #911day.
Nothing could be more important today than joining together to devote time to helping those most in need.

Meal Packing Opportunities
Student Veterans of America’s partner, Raytheon Technologies is the title sponsor of meal packing events through 911Day.org. With that sponsorship, Raytheon has 500 volunteer opportunities which they are splitting across these cities:
For each of the locations we have the following volunteer shift times:
• Shift One: 8am to 10am (25 volunteer slots)
• Shift Two: 11am to 1pm (75 volunteer slots)
• Shift Three: 2pm to 4pm (25 volunteer slots)
Proof of Vaccination Required
We are prioritizing the health and safety of our volunteers by implementing a cautious COVID protocol across all meal pack events. All volunteers must show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination upon entry and masks must be worn at all times. Children over the age of 12 may participate, but must register individually and be able to show proof of vaccination upon entry.
Registration Deadline: Friday, August 27
