In recognition of Earth Day, Chicago 3rd Platoon has partnered with the Cook County Forest Preserve. We will be working with Forest Preserve stewards to provide help in repairing, maintaining and cleaning up our forests.
Work will include: brush clearing removal of invasive plants buck thorn/honey suckle spreading of native plant seeds brush pile burn.
We will also be partnering with ALLENFORCE, a local non-profit that brings together veterans, families and communities in an effort to bridge military and civilian life. ALLENFORCE will be bringing their VETANKS, all-terrain chairs available for use by qualified veterans, enabling independent participation in outdoor and adventure recreation. If you, or someone you know, is interested and in need of a VETANK, please contact Dan Alberti at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
