Hamilton Heights is one of the historic neighborhoods in New York City named after Alexander Hamilton. Recent problematic activity has stirred up the 134st block association to address issues in their neighborhood to include community involvement and restoration. A Local City Counsel member reached out to The Mission Continues to see if we could help revitalize 134 street, one of the current problem areas.
So the Manhattan Platoon sad YES!
We are going to help out and work with the community to restore the street to it's glory. We are going paint a graffiti-ed fence at an abandoned lot in the middle of the street and put wood garden beds around the trees along the street. This is part of a multi-pronged effort to increase community support and involvement, and to tackle current problems the area.
What To Wear :
Clothes you don't mind getting dirty.
Inclement Weather Plan :
In the event of Inclement weather the project will be rescheduled.
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.
