17th annual volunteer day honors 9/11 through joint service

Honoring the lives lost and forever changed on 9/11/01, CFT for Business presented its 17th annual Freedom Day, a community service event last September that was part of CFT’s North Texas Giving Day. In recognition of the courage and bravery of the men and women who fight for our freedom and those first responders who protect us, we dedicated this day of service to them by supporting local organizations that provide essential services to veterans, first responders and their families.



“Stewart Law Group PLLC was honored to celebrate our one-year anniversary at CFT’s Freedom Day. We enjoyed creating over 1,000 care packages and writing notes of encouragement to service men and women. I cannot think of a more rewarding way to celebrate our anniversary than to honor our military currently serving our country and the lives lost as a result of 9/11. Thank you for this opportunity to serve!” -Amy Stewart, Stewart Law Group PLLC


“BVA’s participation allowed us to serve together while honoring our veterans and their families. We had the opportunity to hear from a WWII veteran and
to clean headstones at the DFW National Cemetery, while reminiscing about those who have served our country and lost their lives. It was a time of reflection, and we are glad to have been a small part of this massive effort involving many others across our community.”
 -Jeff Balcombe, BVA Group


A note about CFT’s Freedom Day:

Honoring the lives lost and forever changed on 9/11/01, CFT for Business hosted Freedom Day on September 11th for 20 years. Freedom Day was a community-wide event dedicated to the individuals who fight for our freedom and the first responders who protect us. 

Between 2002 and 2022, Freedom Day brought together 14,000+ volunteers who committed to 50,000+ hours of volunteer service around the September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance, turning a day of tragedy into a day of doing good.

In 2023, the annual celebration of Freedom Day transitioned into a month-long recognition during National Volunteer Month in April. CFT’s celebration of National Volunteer Month engages the entire North Texas community in volunteer service. CFT continues to recognize the National Day of Service and Remembrance in September by engaging in a local volunteer project.
