In 2011, in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and a federally recognized National Day of Service and Remembrance, Holland & Knight partnered with the nonprofit MyGoodDeed and its national 9/11 Day to honor and carry forward the remarkable spirit of unity and service that arose on 9/11. Over the past eight years, as part of our annual 9/11 Day of Service, our employees, together with our clients, colleagues, families and friends, planned and donated over 18,000 days of service to more than 100 nonprofit organizations and schools in our communities.
Since then, Holland & Knight continues its tradition of service and giving to the communities in which we live and work while observing 9/11 as a day of doing good deeds for others.
Examples of some of the service projects completed for 2018 include:
Photos from several of our 9/11 Day of Service activities can be seen on our Facebook page.
Holland & Knight has always emphasized a commitment to improving the lives of others through service. No one exemplified this commitment more than Glenn Winuk, a former Holland & Knight partner and volunteer EMT, who lost his life on 9/11 in the collapse of the World Trade Center. Inspired by Glenn's service, the Holland & Knight Charitable Foundation, through contributions from firm employees, funded and built the New York City Firefighter Memorial Wall, which was officially dedicated in 2006 "to those who fell and to those who carry on." The Memorial Wall, located at Ladder 10 Fire Station, is directly across the street from the site of the former World Trade Center. For additional information about the Memorial Wall, visit our Foundation's site.

We are excited to share this video that features one of Holland & Knight's many 9/11 Days of Service. The video captures our San Francisco office's sixth annual Bayview-Hunters Point 9/11 Day of Service Book Fair.
