This summer, El Paso 1st Platoon will join our lead sponsor, Prudential and the City of El Paso in a collaborative project to restore two of Sun City's very own military parks: Veterans Park and the WWII Men of Company E Park.
We will primarily work at Veterans' Park to concentrate our efforts where most needed. Tasks are as follows:
Tree Planting Landscaping Gardening Painting curbs Painting exterior and interior walls Clear weeds and debri from ball field and parking lot Clean playground of grime and debri
We are excited to join Prudential for this great citywide project in collaboration with various partners across the city. In addition to volunteering, we will also be collecting nonperishable food items to donate to El Pasoans Fighting Hunger as we continue our efforts to increase food security in the city.

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.
