We hope this email finds you well and that you enjoyed the holiday season!!
As we continue to move forward into the new year, it is time to reconnect and support our community and the local organizations within.
With that being said, our annual Martin Luther King Jr. National Day of service campaign, is right around the corner! It is a day for us to honor those who fought and continue to fight for equality, and justice in our everyday lives, both in and out of uniform.
Join us for a day of service with the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank. We will be working with one goal in mind, and that is, to continue to work together to create a brighter future for our community. #legacyofservice
** We will be helping to sort out food, organize the foodbank, and pack boxes/book-bags for those in need.
Yourself, family, friends, and a positive attitude: )
Parking is available on site.
Inclement Weather Plan :
The event will take place indoors. If we are due to experience ice, or sleet, the MLK National Day of Service 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.
