The National Day of Service and Remembrance was established in 2009 as a way to encourage Americans to participate in service and remembrance activities on the 9/11 anniversary. This year, more than 1 million Americans are expected to serve in their communities in honor of 9/11, according to United We Serve , a national organization that rallies behind the cause. The day is part of President Obama's request to renew America through volunteerism. This marks the third consecutive year Mr. Handyman has rallied around the cause, donating a combined 2,200 hours of labor to groups in need over the past three years. Skilled technicians and Home Office team members donated their time to local charities and hope to build on this effort in 2012 and beyond.
