Volunteer on the Intrepid – the Best Way to Honor 9/11

Posted on August 24, 2018 by Alice Kenny  |  Share

Turn Tragedy into Hope for New Yorkers in Need

Looking for the best way to honor 9/11?  Join us as volunteers on the USS Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum for the official NYC Meal Pack for 9/11 Day to pack food for hungry New Yorkers.

As New Yorkers, we witnessed the 9/11 tragedy first hand, losing friends, family and coworkers.  When terrorists attacked, Catholic Charities NY helped lead the response by establishing an integrated system of services.  And now, 17 years later, we again invite you to join us, to turn tragedy into a promise by helping current New Yorkers in need.

Catholic Charities NY, an official partner for this project, will join forces with over 3,000 volunteers representing over 40 companies, interfaith groups and organizations to help combat hunger.

What a beautiful venue!  We’re assembling 750 meals for the hungry on the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum, floating in the Hudson River and parked at 12th Ave. and 46th. St.

  • The event will be held INDOORS and is AIR CONDITIONED.
