In March, in honor of Virginia Women Veterans Week, International Women's Month and the more than 2 million women who have worn the uniform, we'll be celebrating "Her Mission!"
Join us on Thursday, March 21st, for a special TMC Her Mission:Let's make it Purse-nal Breakfast and support project lead by our own women platoon members as we give back to to women who are in need by stuffing gently used purses with personal hygiene items. *While this project is specifically designed to celebrate the active role women play as leaders in the military and in our communities on the home front, all are welcome!
The event is free but we asked that you bring an item to donate towards the project. See list below.
Gently used purses, hygiene items Needed items: New or gently used Purses Personal Hygiene: Feminine Products (tampons, pads, etc) Full size (approx. 12 oz) shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hand/body lotion Full size deodorant
What To Wear :
We ask that you wear clothing (i.e. hat, shirt,etc.) that represents your branch of service.
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.
