In honor of the 10th anniversary of the September 11th attacks, volunteers from American Eagle Outfitters joined fifty elementary school kids at The Children’s Aid Society’s Frederick Douglass Center to create a commemorative banner. The beautiful banner features student-made self-portraits as well as decorated cut-outs of connected hands and t-shirts. Intended to inspire unity and celebrate the strength shown by Americans following the tragic attacks, the banner proudly hangs in the Frederick Douglass gym. 

This special event was part of the Frederick Douglass after-school program. Designed for children ages 5 - 11, the after-school offerings included everything from homework help and tutoring to arts, sports and more.

A special thank you to all of the volunteers from American Eagle Outfitters. Interested in becoming a volunteer? Please visit our volunteer program homepage for more information.
