Mayor Dawn Ramsey was honored to speak at the event and receive the award on behalf of the City.
"In commemoration of the 20th Anniversary of the September 11th, 2001 attacks, the National Day of Service brought together the City of South Jordan and JustServe in a remarkable partnership. Despite the relentless rain, our resilient community saw nearly 1000 volunteers come together to clean the Bingham Creek dry creek bed, tidy the Jordan River Trail, and clear leaves and debris from numerous storm drains across the City," said Mayor Ramsey. "JustServe played a pivotal role in coordinating these projects, collaborating with diverse faith and community groups to mobilize a multitude of volunteers. Even in the less-than-glamorous conditions, especially with the rain, the remarkable turnout was a testament to the exceptional individuals in our community. The day was a heartwarming display of unity and remembrance as we served side by side. We extend our heartfelt appreciation to JustServe for their invaluable partnership in making this event such a resounding success."
