The Mission Continues Orlando - 1st Platoon is again answering the call to support the Soldiers' Angels Hunger Relief Program at their Mobile Food Distribution to supply low-income veteran families with food assistance here in Orlando, FL. Many Veterans and their families have been affected by the recent economic struggles from the COVID pandemic. As the summer months begin to warm up it is even more important we have sufficient volunteers on-site so that we can provide needed breaks to ensure the safety of volunteers and to safely distribute the food to our brothers and sisters in need. Please come support this noble cause if you are able and willing. Many volunteers are choosing to "stay home" and TMC continues to support that decision. We are constantly monitoring the situation to ensure volunteer safety. If you are interested in remote opportunities to support your local platoons here in Orlando please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
