Newpark Mall partners with 9/11 day of service and remembrance
Submitted By Sheryl Craig and Donald Wilson
NewPark Mall staff and retailers encourage everyone to join them as they pause to commemorate the 9/11 tragedy on the 10-year anniversary. Shoppers are invited to volunteer and join NewPark Mall staff and the Tri-Cities League of Volunteers (LOV) as they help those in need by planting winter vegetables in the "Garden of Love" at the Community Service Center, 361230 Ruschin Drive, Newark, on Wednesday, September 7 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Volunteers should bring gardening accessories such as gloves and tools to help till the soil and plant winter vegetables. Plants and seeds will be provided. This is the third year of the garden which supplements the year-round food pantry.
"This is an opportunity for NewPark Mall to unite with the nation as we honor and remember the victims, family members, survivors, rescue and recovery workers and countless volunteers on that tragic day," said Kelly Gardner, General Manager. "What better way to show the strength and goodness of our country than on the 10-year anniversary of 9/11."
