Join the Hispanic Student Association as they lead one of the many service projects on Mason’s 9/11 Day of Service
The Mason Nation 9/11 Day of Service launches on Thursday, September 11, 2014. This exciting, collaborative, university-wide initiative is open to ALL Mason students, faculty, and staff. Let’s work together on a range of service projects across Mason’s campus to honor the memory of those who were tragically lost on 9/11. Get involved today by taking these four simple steps:
1. PLEDGE. Take the “I will” pledge using your Mason email address so the 9/11 National Day of Service folks can track how active the Mason community is!
2. SCHEDULE. Check the schedule to read more about projects and decide which service opportunity fits your day best.
3. REGISTER ONLINE ASAP. Spots will go quickly! http://911day.onmason.com/registration/
4. CHECK IN. On 9/11 at least 15 minutes before you’re scheduled to serve on your project, check in at the Clock Tower. This is where you will also get your meal ticket for the Thank You Lunch with Veterans and First Responders.

On behalf of the planning committee, thank you in advance for your commitment to service. FREE “I Will” T-shirts for the first 150 people who sign up to serve! We look forward to working with you soon!
About the National Day of Service and Remembrance
The second annual Mason Nation 9/11 Day of Service begins at 10 a.m. on Thursday, September 11, 2014. Last year, 47 million people observed 9/11 by doing good deeds, and our inaugural day of service at Mason involved more than four hundred community members.
This year, hundreds of Mason students, faculty, and staff will serve together again on a range of service projects across Mason’s campus. We are excited to announce that this year’s day of service will feature SAIL’s annual service fair, a reading as part of Fall for the Book, and a candlelight vigil organized by Fourth Estate, Mason’s student news outlet.
Get involved today by using your Mason email address to register for the service project in which you’re most interested. Check the schedule first to see which project best fits your Thursday schedule, then register right away, as spots will go quickly! The 9/11 Day of Observance was originally created in 2002 by two friends, David Paine and Jay Winuk, and later designated in 2009 by Congress as a National Day of Service and Remembrance under bipartisan federal law.

On behalf of the planning committee, thank you in advance for your commitment to service. We look forward to working with you soon!
