Event Overview

Save the date for one of our largest projects of the year. Join The Mission Continues and Americorps VISTA members from across the region as we serve in honor of the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We will be in the St. Louis Promise Zone. The Promise Zone’s six goals include increasing economic activity, increasing workforce readiness, improving educational outcomes, improving health & wellness, reducing serious & violent crime and developing sustainable communities. Our service will take place at Twillman Elementary School, where we will be assisting with catching up on general maintenance items to be determined.
