In observance and remembrance of the tragic events on September 11, 2001, volunteers will participate in a neighborhood-wide service day performing various home repairs in the Capital City Estates including painting, landscaping, pressure washing, and more.
Volunteers are asked to register online at LeonCountyFL.gov/DayofService, and gather at Crossway Baptist Church, 405 Crossway Road, at 8 a.m. Leon County employees, community partners, and citizen volunteers will unite in service and volunteerism in remembrance of the nearly 3,000 lives lost during the attacks on September 11, 2001.
Since 2011, Leon County Government has held the 9/11 Day of Remembrance and Service to honor victims, survivors, and others who rose in service in response to the attacks.
