Metro Detroit volunteers to mark 9/11 anniversary
About 700 people are expected to mark the 10thanniversary of the 9-11 attacks with a day of service in Detroit.
More than ten organizations are spearheading the event, called “Acts of Kindness," or AOK Detroit.
Kate Casa is with the social services agency ACCESS. She says the success of a smaller effort last year, combined with the 10thanniversary, will make for a large turnout.
"I think those are both factors in the interest this year. I think people saw this as a really positive way to memorialize what was a sad event, and to turn that into something that can be positive."
Volunteers will be based at Focus: HOPE in Detroit. They’ll pack food boxes and clean up vacant lots in the surrounding neighborhood as part of the service project.
