A National Day of Service and Remembrance

  • RTB intro text

    Join us for a National Day of Service and Remembrance!

    September 11, 2021, is the 20th anniversary of that tragic day. On this day Americans across the country are called to volunteer in their local communities.
    Join Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati's Rock the Block team on Saturday, September 11th, as we engage with our country in a day of volunteer service in tribute to the individuals who were lost and injured in the attacks, first responders, and the many who have risen in service to defend freedom.

    We will be honoring, remembering, and serving by working in the yard, and celebrating hope in the Evanston neighborhood.
