Among the most powerful ways to honor those who have served, is to continue serving with their sacrifice in mind.
On Veterans Day, join The Mission Continues Detroit Platoons for a special collaboration with The Detroit Lions, Comerica Bank, and Caniff Electric Supply Co., and United Way for Southeastern Michigan for a day of impact at the Boys and Girls Club.
The clubhouse serves 60-100 children and teens daily, and is in continuous need of support to create and maintain a safe, welcoming environment for the youth to gather, learn, and play.
For Hometown Huddle, we will take on a number of projects to revive the clubhouse and encourage creativity and learning. Projects will include the construction of a reading loft, painting, and the complete overhaul of the students' coat and backpack storage room. Volunteers should be equipped with a can-do attitude and the ability to work as a team.
This event is family-friendly, and will include activities for younger children. Children under 18 years require an adult companion who can sign a liability release on their behalf. All ages and abilities are welcomed so please contact the organizers if you have any additional needs or for a special volunteer role request.

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.
