Serve DC

September 11, 2014 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Serve DC is encouraging residents to commemorate the September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance and pay tribute to men and women in uniform by giving back. On behalf of Blue Star Families and Operation Honor Card, Serve DC is hosting “#ThankUniforms,” an outreach campaign that calls on District residents to pledge and fulfill service hours to honor the service of first responders, military service members, veterans, and their families.

On September 11, Serve DC staff and volunteer teams will be at #ThankUniforms pop-ups at Metrorail stations across the city, including:

*   Foggy Bottom/GWU (GWU Hospital exit)
*   Navy Yard/Ballpark (M Street and New Jersey Avenue exit)
*   U Street/Cardozo (U and 12th Street exit)
*   Union Station (Massachusetts Avenue exit)

At the pop-ups, individuals can complete honor cards pledging community service, submit personalized thank-you messages to service members and share their commitment via social media. Serve DC will also collect service pledges and messages online throughout the day.

Upon completing an in-person or online honor card, Serve DC is asking individuals and groups to use social media to share their commitment and encourage their networks to get involved. Individuals can download a customizable #ThankUniforms sign or create your own, then take a picture of yourself or your group and share it via social media. Be sure to include the hashtag #ThankUniforms and tag @ServeDC.

Serve DC will compile all photos and messages for a special album that will be shared with first responders and military service members. The total number of hours pledged will be submitted to the Operation Honor Cards national tally on behalf of the District of Columbia Government and corresponding thank-you messages will be shared with military service members and families and displayed in public venues in Washington, DC and at military installations across the country.
