New York Says Thank You
After the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, a group of New Yorkers decided to volunteer in different cities every year around the anniversary to say “thank you” for the help New York City received. This time, home was where that help was needed most.
New York Says Thank You was formed after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Each year, the group travels to different cities across the country on the week of Sept. 11 to help communities hit by disaster rebuild.
