This important event hosted by LA Works is one of six signature 9/11 Day-supported projects being held in observance of this year’s anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Other event locations include NYC, Phoenix, and San Francisco. In the Los Angeles area, LA Works expects to engage over 1,000 volunteers from area companies, organizations, and other groups to pack more than 300,000 meals for distribution to children, families, seniors, and military veterans in the Los Angeles area at risk of hunger. 9/11 Day is now the nation’s largest annual day of charitable engagement, officially recognized under federal law.
Each 9/11, nearly 30 million Americans volunteer, donate to charities, and perform other good deeds to promote national unity and empathy, in honor of the victims of 9/11 and those who rose in service in response to the attacks.
You will be helping us set up all of the packaging lines, equipment, signage, staging ingredients, and all that is needed to prepare the space for the next day’s activity.

Inclement Weather Plan :
Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
