In an effort to honor 9/11 during this unique year of 2020, six Denver faith communities and neighbors joined together in a day to justLOVE, justGIVE and justSERVE.
The three-fold focus for 9/11 Day of Service helped participants reach beyond their circles to make the world a more loving, giving and hopeful place.
Those wishing to join in the day could show some love to a friend or stranger, donate food at the food drive, or choose a service project from the website justserve.org.
Over 9000 pounds of food were donated, both locally and through Salt Lake City humanitarian services. These items were donated to food pantries throughout the Denver area, including Kingdom Connection, Jewish Family Service, Muslim Colorado Food Relief and Covenant Cupboard.
In addition, people volunteered to distribute food at pantries, building shelves, or writing a card to the elderly, to name a few.
