About Operation USO Care Package
Operation USO Care Package began in 2003 and has shipped more than 1.6 million care packages. These morale boosting packages contain toiletries, prepaid international phone cards, snacks, playing cards and other requested and needed items, plus personal messages of support from the donors.
My Good Deed’s vision is to annually rekindle on 9/11 the remarkable spirit of unity and service that existed in our nation in the days following the attacks – honoring the lives of the thousands who were killed and injured on 9/11 — as well as to pay tribute to the many who rose to service in response to the 9/11 tragedy including the brave men and women in our military.
About the Tribute WTC Visitor Center
The Tribute WTC Visitor Center is located at 120 Liberty Street along the south side of the World Trade Center site. The center was created by the September 11th Families’ Association to share the personal stories of victims, survivors, rescue and recovery workers, volunteers, and residents of Lower Manhattan. By engaging visitors in the authentic experiences of those most affected by the events of February 26, 1993 and September 11, 2001, the center’s five galleries and its walking tour program convey the courage, loss, heroism, and grief of those who responded to the tragedy.
The Tribute WTC Visitor Center is open seven days a week: Mondays, and Wednesdays through Saturdays, from 10AM to 6 PM; Tuesdays from noon until 6 PM; and Sundays from noon to 5 PM. Walking tours around the perimeter of Ground Zero are also conducted daily. For further information please visit our website, www.tributewtc.org.
