This year marks the 18th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and The Mission Continues is issuing a call to serve and stand united. Mission Continues Service Platoons nationwide are organizing service projects for veterans and local volunteers to come together, make a difference in their community, and remember those who served and sacrificed in the wake of 9/11.
Please join all 5 platoons for our 9/11 National Day of Service event.
Have you ever been to a park and wondered what that space looked like before development? Well, wonder no more. This year for our Nation Day of Service event we are going to create a park in the east end district. In the month of June, 5th platoon started beautification of the area with planting trees along Capital blvd and painting the underpass at Forest Hill. To continue the mission we are making our way to Capital at S 72nd St.

Tree planting Building butterfly garden planter boxes Build and install a pergola Build and install sitting areas Build a walkway Planting flowers Mulching Litter pick-up And so much more!

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.
