United We Serve
President Obama's Call to National Service
"United We Serve" is a nationwide service initiative that will help meet growing social needs resulting from the economic downturn. With the knowledge that ordinary people can achieve extraordinary things when given the proper tools, President Obama is asking us to come together to help lay a new foundation for growth. This initiative aims to both expand the impact of existing organizations by engaging new volunteers in their work and encourage volunteers to develop their own "do-it-yourself" projects. United We Serve is an initial 81 days of service but will grow into a sustained, collaborative and focused effort to promote service as a way of life for all Americans.
9/11 National Day of Service and Remembrance
In honor of the September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance, the Corporation for National and Community Service is supporting service activities in all fifty states. We are working with nonprofit organizations, faith-based groups, government at all levels, businesses, and individuals to reignite the spirit of unity and service that inspired Americans in the days after the September 11, 2001 tragedy.
In support of this call to service, the Center for Service & Civic Engagement plans an annual 9/11 service project. To participate, please contact the us by calling 937-382-6661, ext 710.
