BATON ROUGE - Today, volunteers around the Baton Rouge area took time to remember those killed in the 9/11 attacks and show their appreciation to troops serving oversees.

The Capital Area United Way along with BASF honored first responding agencies and troops in downtown Baton Rouge. Volunteers stuffed care packages for more than 300 Louisiana based troops serving overseas, saying it was the least they could do.

"You can say all day, 'Hey I'm really appreciative.' But until you take the time and make a sacrifice and take valuable time for you to actually make an effort and a point to show you care and appreciate... it's such a cool opportunity," said Lee Hardee.

EBR Mayor-President Kip Holden and Police Chief Carl Dabadie helped stuff care packages as well.
