The Heber Valley group putting on this 9/11 Day of Service consists of representatives from local civic groups, faith organizations, the forest service, school councils and the Wasatch Parent Network, senior centers, the Wasatch Community Foundation, and other local groups connected to our community.
In conjunction with the National Day of Service, we have organized a variety of service opportunities for individuals and families throughout the Heber Valley that are posted on Just Serve.
This is the 21th Anniversary of 9/11 and a great opportunity to give back to our community.
We very much look forward to joining with our neighbors on that weekend to provide service in honor of those first responders who served on this heroic day.
We hope you'll consider setting aside some time to provide services on this September 10th or another time in the month of September. We know this will impact our valley in a beautiful way!
