It could not have been a more beautiful day. The Mission Continues returned to the Ferguson-Florissant School District for the second service event this month (we had a blast during our Bravo 2015 orientation project). This time the team served alongside more than 40 hardworking volunteers from our friends at PNC Bank.

In just under five hours, the team tackled several much-needed projects around the Ferguson-Florissant’s Early Childhood Center to foster a safer and more vibrant place for local youth to learn and grow.

The team built raised gardening beds



Repaired the playground storage shed


Painted walkways


Beautified a green space



And planted new trees surrounding the outdoor playground



“I was overwhelmed by everyone’s enthusiastic support and boundless energy for the many-faceted project at our center,” said Joy Rouse, Director of the Ferguson-Florisssant Early Childhood Center. “Right this minut,e a class of 3-year olds is outside with big buckets of water dipping in their sprinkling cans to water trees. Your efforts have brought nature closer to us and given our children authentic ways to learn.”
