Butler County Community unites in volunteer service to commemorate Sept. 11

Butler County residents will step up in service to mark the 16th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks for the Sept. 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance. Volunteers will be delivering baked goods to the local first responders, joining hundreds of thousands of Americans across the country in volunteer service. Local residents are being asked to help provide baked goods to ensure we have enough for all of our first responders. The Foster Grandparent volunteers will be providing dozens of baked goods for both cities.

“September 11th is a day of history, emotion and reflection,” Melody Gault, the Foster Grandparent and RSVP program manager, said. “For many Americans, it is also a day of service that provides an opportunity to join neighbors and local leaders to rekindle the compassion and unity shown on that day.”
