Join us for the Annual 9/11 Unity Walk’s Service Project from 1:00pm – 2:15pm at Washington Hebrew Center, in Washington DC! We will be hosting a non-perishable food drive during the walk, and a live service project making bags of trail mix benefiting the Community Council for the Homeless at Friendship Place (CCHFP).
Location: Washington Hebrew Center, 3935 Macomb Street NW Washington, DC 20016
Date: Sunday, September 11th, 2011

CCHFP’s mission is to empower men and women experiencing homelessness to rebuild their lives with the involvement of the community
Additionally, we will also have a service fair featuring organizations involved in community service in Washington DC. The trail mix service project will be set up in the center of the room with items lined up for you to scoop and put into a bag and then put in a donation box. Our goal is to make 800 bags of trail mix by the end of the service project!
Note: there will be boxes set up at each congregation participating in walk for donations of non-perishable food for CCHFP.
Explore a variety of different faith traditions and experience various exchanges along Massachusetts Avenue including a Muslim call to prayer, Jewish Cantors singing, a turban tying demonstration at a Sikh temple, and a gospel choir singing Amazing Grace.
Churches, synagogues, mosques, and temples all along Massachusetts Avenue open their doors on this day every year for open houses.
The Annual 9/11 Unity Walk was started in response to the religious intolerance that resulted from the tragic events of September 11, 2001. People from different ages, backgrounds, and faiths participate in this annual walk down Embassy Row in Washington D.C. in solidarity.
This year’s walk, “From different walks, we serve as one.” will begin at the Washington Hebrew Congregation at 1:00 pm with a symbolic Muslim call to prayer and keynote speakers- and will conclude at around 4:30 pm at the Gandhi Memorial with a closing celebration.
