Clear Channel Named Official Partner Of 9/11 Day Of Service
September 5, 2013
Clear Channel Media + Entertainment has been named the official entertainment partner once again of 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance by the nonprofit organization MyGoodDeed. Since 2010, Clear Channel has used its reach to inspire millions of Americans to observe the anniversary of 9/11 by serving others. Over the last three years, Clear Channel has committed over $10 million in support, the largest media contribution by any 9/11 Day partner.
From September 1 through September 11, Clear Channel’s 840 radio stations will air a series of on-air public service messages in support of 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance. Listeners who want to participate can choose options including volunteering, donating to charities of their choice, or simply making a voluntary pledge to dedicate time on 9/11, or another day, to performing good deeds that help others in need.
"Clear Channel was an inaugural partner of 9/11 Day in 2011 because we strongly believed in giving the public a platform to publicly or privately honor those lost in the attacks on September 11, 2001,” said Jessica King, Director of Community Engagement for Clear Channel. "We believe our participation is more important each passing year to ensure that 9/11 Day remains the world’s largest annual day of charitable service and giving in the U.S."
"Clear Channel Media and Entertainment has been an absolutely instrumental partner for three years, helping us substantially increase public awareness of, and participation in 9/11 Day," said David Paine, President/Co-founder of the 9/11 Day Observance. "The entire company has been deeply dedicated to the cause of remembering and honoring the victims and heroes of 9/11, and we are extremely thankful and touched by their ongoing commitment to 9/11 Day."
