The 9/11 Day of Service is an annual event honoring 9/11 heroes who rose up in service in response to the attacks. It is an opportunity for the community to come together, make new connections, and work as one team to benefit others. 9/11 Day of Service was founded by AmeriCorps.

In the spirit of the outpouring of support that followed September 11, 2001, ICS invites all in the community to work together and help address the critical need for food in Southern Arizona. More than 112,000 people in Pima County experience food insecurity.

ICS food banks accept most food items before expiration. The most needed items are peanut butter, canned meats (tuna, chicken, and Spam), meals in pop-top cans like chili and ravioli, canned fruit and veggies, boxed baking mixes like Jiffy and Bisquick, pasta, canned pasta sauce, and diapers and wipes.
