The Mission Continues will be hosting a national service project at Crandon Park on Saturday, January 27th, as part of our Alpha 2018 Orientation. Donated to Miami Dade County in 1940, Crandon Park is one of the country's best preserved natural beaches and wildlife sanctuaries, and is a popular location for all of South Florida's diverse community. Due to substantial hurricane damage and cutbacks in state funding, Crandon Park is in need of our help. Military veterans from across the country will join the Miami Service Platoon, the Florida Panthers Foundation and community volunteers to help preserve and protect Crandon Park by completing the following:
- Restore sand dunes damaged by Hurricane Irma by planting 3,000 sea oats
- Repurpose the old Miami Zoo exhibit grounds through landscaping projects, painting and bench building
- Conduct beach cleanup and trail repair along Crandon Park Beach
- Revive outdoor roller rink by adding a fresh coat of paint and refurbishing picnic tables
Come out and serve alongside The Mission Continues during an incredible afternoon. See you there!

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.
