Join us for a screening of the film “New York Says Thank You” by the New York Says Thank You Foundation
on Saturday, September 15th, at 2 p.m. Started in 2003 at the suggestion of a 5-year-old boy, The New York Says Thank You Foundation has grown into one of the nation’s leading organizations to transform the 9/11 Anniversary into a positive, hands-on platform for national volunteer service.
Filmed and edited over a six-year period, “New York Says Thank You” tells the story of survivors of 9/11 and survivors of natural disasters nationwide who have rebuilt hope in their lives by helping others in need. The film is a beautiful testament to the American Spirit as New York Says Thank You volunteers gather each year on the 9/11 Anniversary in small towns across America impacted by disaster to participate in good old fashioned “barn raisings.”
The secret to the Foundation's growing “Pay It Forward” movement is very simple: What we do is about 9/12.
