Wednesday is Patriot Day
Let’s make it a national day of service and remembrance:
Check out Points of Light, a great initiative toward more community service and patriotism in our country. See some excerpts from their website: “Points of Light believes that bringing people together in service builds a permanent and positive legacy that rekindles the spirit of unity that existed immediately after Sept. 11, 2001. It brings together cultures, bridges differences and unites citizens of goodwill around the world.”
See what Georgia is doing tomorrow with Points of Light:
“Hands On Atlanta and its corporate volunteers will work in Atlanta Public Schools to train more than 1,250 students to prepare their homes and families for disasters. Students will also write and decorate appreciation cards and flower pots for local fire and police officers.”
“Volunteer Macon will host a Veterans Stand Down event to focus on the needs of returning service men and women and provide important information on disaster preparedness and community readiness. The organization will also host several training workshops for nonprofits, individuals and families to help them create sound plans of action for disaster.”
