6. A-OK (Acts of Kindness) Service Day

Transforming 9/11: Working Side by Side to Make a Difference

“Acts of kindness protect one from ruin wrought by evil.”
– Muhammad, peace be upon him

  • About A-OK Service Day:
    In response to a call by President Barack Obama to make 9/11 an annual National Day of Service and Remembrance, hundreds of Detroit-area young people will come together to brighten the lives of others. Organizations across Michigan have joined together to commemorate Sunday, September 11th, the tenth anniversary of 9/11, as a busy day of community service and interfaith and intercultural interaction in our region.

    An estimated 700 volunteers will be on hand for projects such as park beautification, vacant lot clean-up, food packaging, sorting art supplies for local schools, and writing thank you cards to U.S. troops serving abroad. As they work side by side, their energy and dedication will help transform 9/11 into a day of learning about each others interests, families, and faith traditions. After the projects are completed, there will be a structured dialogue series designed to increase tolerance and understanding, with the goal of promoting a sense of unity, peace, community-building, and mutual understanding.
