HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Many Hattiesburg residents spent the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks Friday volunteering to help the community or honoring local first responders.

Some worked at local schools, youth centers or animal shelters as part of the first-ever, #WeareHattie service project.

Elsewhere, members of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity at Southern Miss hosted a September 11th Commemoration Program.

Hattiesburg and USM police officers, along with Hattiesburg firefighters and local emergency medical technicians, received certificates of appreciation during the event.
