Day Of Service Planned In LA To Honor 9/11 Victims
Angelenos will honor those who died in the 9/11 terrorist attacks with a day of service at the L.A. Convention Center.
Samantha Wheeler, a spokesperson for L.A. Works, said volunteering can help people focus on something positive during an anniversary that's important — but also hard — to remember.
"We're trying to turn this day that's been so tragic into a day of doing good," said Wheeler.
She said this is also an opportunity to address significant problems of food insecurity in L.A.
"Food insecurity has become a major, major issue — especially with the rise of COVID-19," Wheel said. "It's just become really important for us to invest as much volunteer power as we can towards combatting that issue."
