Governor Cuomo Announces Commemoration of September 11th Day of Service by New York State Americorps Members

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that hundreds of AmeriCorps members from all corners of New York State will converge on Albany County to complete a community service project as part of the September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance. The project is part of a two-day nationwide event that also marks the 20th anniversary of the AmeriCorps national service program.

“In the aftermath of September 11th, New Yorkers from every corner of the State came together to support one another, and we continue this tradition by volunteering in the memory of those who were lost,” Governor Cuomo said. “Volunteers like AmeriCorps members are part of a long history of service in New York State, and as we commemorate this important day I encourage all New Yorkers to come together and give back to their communities.”

The New York State Commission on National and Community Service – New Yorkers Volunteer, a Governor-appointed commission, uses the power of AmeriCorps to address some of the State’s most challenging issues, and encourages citizens to make a difference in the lives of their neighbors. More than 72,000 AmeriCorps members in New York have completed more than 110 million hours of service since 1994.
