South Hills Platoon will be joining forces with Pittsburgh 1st Platoon for The Mission Continues National Day of Service in remembrance of September 11th.
Scope of work:
We will be working in 3 sites, Hazelwood Initiative has asked us to help with cleaning up and painting the gazebo and build sitting benches in it for community members to socialize within the parklet.
We will also be working at the Summer MarketPlace on 2nd avenue weatherizing the vendor stands and building picnic tables and benches for the KaBoom playground site.
And at the KaBoom site, we are still working out the details of the day, but a chair accessible path and tiles are being talked about, along with a fence around the footprint of the play ground, and beautification around the site. We are still waiting to see which project partners are confirmed on the KaBoom Site, so updates will be posted on THIS event page.

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.
