In the Greater East End, Forest Hill Bridge is most used by children going to and from school. The bridge has some over growth causing the walkway to be hazardous. This leads walkers to seek an alternative route, which is often in the street with motor vehicles. Not so far from the bridge is an area closed off to traffic but can be used as an outdoor space for passer-byers. These spaces are sure to offer a work out as we dig, mulch, paint, plant and haul. Come join the fun.
1) Forest Hill: pressure wash and paint the underpass, mow the grass, cut back the brush 2) 72nd St at the dead end: mow grass, level surface, add gravel, build raised flower beds, plant trees 3) Capitol: dig holes, plant trees (stake them and mulch them)

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.
