(PIX11) -- More than 500 volunteers from the 9/11 Tribute Center began assembling bicycles for children of active duty military members, Thursday morning.

This is the fourth consecutive year that 9/11 Tribute Center has organized a service event.

Many of the volunteers come from companies which were affected by 9/11.

About the 9/11Tribute Center
The 9/11 Tribute Center is located at 120 Liberty Street along the south side of the World Trade Center site. The center was created by the September 11th Families’ Association to share the personal stories of victims, survivors, rescue and recovery workers, volunteers, and residents of Lower Manhattan. By
engaging visitors in the authentic experiences of those most affected by the events of February 26, 1993 and September 11, 2001, the center’s five galleries and its walking tour program convey the courage, loss, heroism, and grief of those who responded to the tragedy.
The 9/11 Tribute Center is open seven days a week: Mondays, and Wednesdays through Saturdays, from 10AM to 6 PM; Tuesdays from noon until 6 PM;
and Sundays from noon to 5 PM. Walking tours of the 9/11 Memorial are also conducted daily. For further information  visit,
