We created a great space, and now it needs to be completed. There are a few things that we wanted to do, but ran out of time, so we are going to return to this awesome park and make it even better!
We are going to partner with the Friends of the Park to host this service project and outreach event. We are going to engage the local homeless veterans that have been using this park. Friends of the Park is going to have a Veterans Day Cookout to honor the communities veterans at Mattie Freeland Park.
There are a few projects that need to get completed. We are going to finish spreading the gravel on the walking path, and secure the edging that has come loose, install the basketball hoops and backboards, finish the planter boxes, and replace the colored plexi-glass that is broken. Also, we will do a community and heighborhood clean up.
Additionally, there are some other surprises being planned that will make this day even better!
Sign up now to get all the details as they become available.
Additionally, Westside Volunteer Corps is having an event the same day! It will be at the Joseph and Sarah Caring for Vets house on Sunset Ave. Here is the link to their page to see what is happening there: http://my.unitedwayatl.org/westsidevolunteercorps/uwga-nov-signup.html

Inclement Weather Plan :

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.
