This year marks the 18th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and The Mission Continues NOLA 1st Platoon is issuing a call to serve and stand united. We are organizing service a project for veterans and local volunteers to come together, make a difference in their community, and remember those who served and sacrificed in the wake of 9/11.
Join us as we honor 9/11 with a project with SBP. SBP is a disaster relief organization that serves low - to moderate - income residents with a special focus on families with small children, the elderly, disabled persons, war veterans and the under- and uninsured.

Our project tasks will include building garden beds, helping with landscaping and the build of 2 of their Opportunity Homes.

Inclement Weather Plan :

Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
