Remembered fondly for his youthful vigor and glamorous wife, President John F. Kennedy remains one of Americans' favorite presidents.
JFK was 46 when he died. He was shot in Dallas in an open car, with wife Jackie at his side on November 22nd, 1963.
Kennedy was remembered with prayer, song and tears in Dallas on Friday, the 50th anniversary of his assassination, as the city held its first official ceremony marking an event seen as the darkest day in its history.
To honor Kennedy on his 50th death anniversary, #JFKDAY, the citywide volunteer initiative, took place on Saturday.
Hundreds and thousands of local citizens and teams from major corporate partners volunteered in masses, serving charities around Dallas, showing the city’s spirit of generosity, devotion and loyalty to the community.
Here are a few tweets and photos showing people’s participation in promoting volunteerism on JFK Day.
Participating partners in service included: The Salvation Army, the SPCA of Dallas, Goodwill Industries of Dallas, North Texas Food Bank and Buckner International, among many others.
