Volunteers are needed to assist with Pennsauken’s annual observance of the terrorist attacks committed on Sept. 11, 2001.

Each year, 2,997 American flags, one for each individual who lost their life during the attacks, are placed throughout Pennsauken’s 9/11 Memorial, located at the corner of Merchantville Ave. and Rt. 130.

 Volunteers are needed to help distribute the flags on Sept. 10 at 11:59 p.m. and remove them on Sept. 11 at 11:59 p.m. Those wishing to participate on either day are asked to arrive by 11:45 p.m. at the latest.

Pennsauken’s 9/11 monument was first dedicated on Sept. 11, 2003, as a tribute to the heroes of 9/11, as well as direct responders such as police, fire and EMS, who serve every day to protect American citizens in the communities where they live. In remembrance of the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, a steel beam from the World Trade Center North Tower was dedicated as a permanent part of the memorial.
