9/11 Serve To Remember Event

Join hundreds of Middle Tennesseans in honoring those who serve our country this September 11th. “Serve to Remember” activities are particularly meaningful because local Clarksville military families – who are friends, neighbors, and co-workers – have made unimaginable sacrifices to protect America.

From helping at Salvation Army and organizing Teacher’s Warehouse to setting up City of Clarksville Parks and Recreation’s Riverfest event, there are a variety of options to fit your niche. Hands On Clarksville’s goal is to engage a minimum of 600 volunteers in various service activities from September 1-11. Help them make it happen!

In 2011, Hands On Clarksville (HOC) participated in the Corporation for National Community Service 9/11 Serve to Remember Challenge. With more than 900 volunteers throughout Clarksville Montgomery County giving their time, treasures, and talents to honor those serving our country, HOC was awarded a Serve to Remember grant to expand volunteerism in our community and commemorate the 911 National Day of Service and Remembrance through September 2014.

HOC, a program of Hands On Nashville, meets needs directly in our community through volunteerism.

This year’s “Serve to Remember” activities will be held in partnership with various community organizations including the Salvation Army, City of Clarksville Parks and Recreation (RIVERFEST), Teacher’s Warehouse, APSU Service Learning, LEAP, Loaves and Fishes, Old Fire House Day Shelter and Resource Center, Ft. Campbell Soldier and Family Assistance Center, and other organizations and civic groups. Click here and find how to make your mark and honor our soldiers.
