United Way of Greater New Bedford invites you to participate in their Annual Day of Caring! This year's event will be held on Wednesday, September 11, in coordination with the National Day of Service & Remembrance.

"September 11th is Patriot Day and a National Day of Service and Remembrance. On this day Americans across the country are called to volunteer in their local communities in tribute to the individuals lost and injured in the attacks, first responders, and the many who have risen in service to defend freedom." - NationalService.Gov
