From 2021 through 2023, teamworks communication partnered with the nonprofit “9/11 Day” to help promote this National Day of Service through large-scale meal pack events in a growing number of markets each year.
911 Day began in 2002 with a mission to transform the tragedy of September 11 into the largest day of service in America. By 2009, the U.S. Congress and the President joined in support the 9/11 Day observance, formally recognizing and proclaiming September 11 a National Day of Service and Remembrance under Federal law. In addition to encouraging millions of Americans to do good deeds on that date each year, 9/11 Day also works with corporations around the country to provide their employees with service opportunities that day through large-scale meal pack events.
teamworks provided 9/11 Day with a turnkey PR and Event Management approach that allowed them to successfully grow into additional markets each year. In 2023, teamworks identified, vetted, contracted with and actively managed local market event managers in 15 markets (up from 9 markets in 2022), who handle the planning, team coordination and execution of meal pack events benefiting a local food bank, as well as public relations. These markets were: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Nashville, Phoenix, St. Louis, Tampa and Washington D.C.
In addition to holding successful events that on average delivered 300,000 meals per market, our event managers also garnered 400+ tv, radio, print and online media placements, generating 26 million impressions in these 15 markets.
