Volunteerism and Community Support
Countless volunteers, official and unofficial, gave gifts and resources. Help came from across the country and all walks of life. Volunteers came to assist in the search for survivors, for cleanup, and for care and support of the survivors and the victim’s families.
Many agencies and nonprofit organizations responded quickly and created medical, legal, and monetary relief programs to provide for the immediate and long-term needs of people living in the aftermath of September 11.
