On November 23, 2013 the citizens of Dallas, Texas joined hands on a day of service to live out the legacy of President John F. Kennedy on the 50th anniversary of his death. Founder, Chart Westcott, hoped that when the world would shift its gaze to look at Dallas on this historic anniversary that they would see a city of service committed to sharing the message of President Kennedy when he said, “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”

Over 3,000 volunteers participated in 12,000 hours of service in tribute to the fallen president. Many of Dallas’ largest companies, civic organizations, and educational institutions participated in JFK Day, a nonpartisan, citizen led initiative. It is with great hope and promise that the people and institutions of Dallas County look ahead to the next 50 years and all the good that will take place in this city as the memory and legacy of President Kennedy lives on.
