Commit to Color

THE MISSION

Host a Goody Bag coloring event or letter writing event at your location. Family, School, and Corporate volunteers set aside just a few minutes to reflect on the memory of September 11th in the days leading up to the Anniversary.   Participants come together to color or write letters for America’s First Responders and Troops. It’s simple…just return the colored bags and letters to our national headquarters in preparation for our large public packing events.
