Due: Friday, Sept 10th
Location: At Home
Drop Off: KHK Office
Volunteers for this project will join us in decorating “badges of honor” for local first responders and drop them off to the office by September 10th. We will create an art installation, lasting a week, at the entrance of The Boys and Girls Club to showcase those currently serving and honor those who served on September 11th. Volunteers will receive .5 hours for each badge they create and bring in.
ABOUT THIS PROJECT:
Serve to Remember: We are increasingly challenged to explain the significance of the events of September 11, 2001 to America’s young people since none of them have any first-hand memory of the time. Honoring this moment in our nation’s history by way of volunteering helps transform 9/11 into a day of unity, empathy, and service as an enduring and positive tribute to those lost and injured on 9/11, and the many who rose in service in response to the attacks, including first responders, recovery workers, volunteers and members of our military.
How can YOU help?
Download the "badge of honor pdf". Click this link to find the name of the hero(es) you will be creating badges for. Please write your name next to the badge(s) you are creating so we do not duplicate any. If you know a first responder who is not on the list that you would like to honor you are more than welcome to dedicate your badge to them. Badges of honor must include:
- Legibly written name of hero between brackets
- Fully colored in badge
- Statement of heroism underneath the badge
- Examples include:
- "You are a hero because you are brave"
- "Bravery and selflessness makes a hero"
- "A hero gives their life to something bigger than oneself"
- "Their courage makes them a hero"
- "A hero is a person who accepts even the most terrifying challenges"
- "A hero protects their community"
- "Heros make sure we are safe"
- "Not all heroes wear capes, many wear badges"
