Rabbis Analia Bortz and Peter Berg were among those who spoke at Hands on Atlanta’s 9/11 Day of Service in which 1,000 volunteers helped pack meals for Atlanta families in need.
Hands on Atlanta partnered in the event with Feeding Children Everywhere and the Atlanta Community Food Bank. The volunteers packed 330,000 meals at the College Football Hall of Fame.
Each shift began with a ceremony commemorating the lives lost and altered 18 years ago. Faith leaders offered words of healing; first responders both were honored and volunteered; and children from Hands on Atlanta-supported schools sang “America the Beautiful.”
Those gathered shared a minute of silence, then got to work making a difference for those in need.
