Helping build a Sept. 11, 2001, memorial in Washington Township, Pa., will soon be only a phone call away. Volunteers working on the memorial at Red Run Park are putting together a fundraiser scheduled for Tuesday. Country station WAYZ will broadcast live from the park from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. as call-takers work a phone bank for donors. So far, just shy of $28,000 has been raised for the memorial, which will feature artifacts from Ground Zero in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and the Shanksville, Pa., field where United Airlines Flight 93 crashed.
