ST. GEORGE — In commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 9/11/01, and in support of the National Day of Service, the communities of Washington County are coming together to organize community service projects on Saturday, September 11, 2021, from 7 a.m.-9 a.m.

Residents of all ages living in Washington County are invited to participate. The projects consist primarily of neighborhood beautification and clean-up efforts throughout Washington County, in preparation for the Ironman 70.3 World Championship event, being held the following week. You can also check JustServe.org for projects you can do at home as well as other available community projects looking for volunteer help.

Please wear closed-toe shoes and wear gloves where needed. Please wear bright colored clothing and have plenty of personal water on hand.

You can use the hashtags — #911day or #911utahdayofservice when posting photos or content about the projects and service you are rendering. We invite you to come out and participate in the largest community service project ever held in Southern Utah.
