Veterans and their families are used to being thanked for their service, especially during Military Appreciation Month in May, and it’s time for us to #ThankItForward. We know that under-resourced communities will be especially impacted by issues like food insecurity, economic inequality and access to essential resources, and our partners are hard at work to remain open and support their communities. In response to COVID-19, The Mission Continues is grateful for the opportunity to continue serving alongside essential community organizations that are on the frontlines. Together, veteran leaders and volunteers are making a positive, long-lasting impact in our communities.

Join us today and #ThankItForward by sharing your message of thanks with the organizations in your community. This is an opportunity to share gratitude and stand in solidarity with these hometown heroes. We are here for them today, and will be here for them long after this pandemic has passed to aid in their recovery.

For the month of May our local platoons plan to #ThankItForward by flooding our partner Catie’s Closet and Mill City Grows with love. During this Covid-19 crisis, Catie’s Closet has continued to serve students and families in need in Lowell, Lawrence, Nashua NH, Boston, and Springfield with essential items like clothing and toiletries so they can stay healthy and safe. Mill City Grows has continued to work hard to ensure that healthy food is available to the community through the Mobile Market and online purchasing programs.

Remotely, but as a team, we'll send homemade cards, personal notes, and "thank you" coloring pages from our smallest and most creative platoon members! Sign up to participate below, and receive instructions on how to help us say Thank You from the comfort and safety of your own home!
