Event Overview

Veterans and their families are used to being thanked for their service, especially during Military Appreciation Month in May, and it’s time for us to #ThankItForward. We know that under-resourced communities will be especially impacted by issues like food insecurity, economic inequality and access to essential resources, and our partners are hard at work to remain open and support their communities. In response to COVID-19, The Mission Continues is grateful for the opportunity to continue serving alongside essential community organizations that are on the frontlines. Together, veteran leaders and volunteers are making a positive, long-lasting impact in our communities. Join us today and #ThankItForward by sharing your message of thanks with the organizations in your community. This is an opportunity to share gratitude and stand in solidarity with these hometown heroes. We are here for them today, and will be here for them long after this pandemic has passed to aid in their recovery. In Columbus, we plan to #ThankItForward during the month of May by flooding the mailboxes of our community partners including Feeding the Valley and the Boys and Girls Club of the Chattahoochee Valley. We are also encouraging all participants to thank an essential worker of their choosing. We will send you everything you need to thank both our partners and the essential worker of your choice. Remotely, but as a team, we’ll send homemade cards, personal notes, and “thank you” coloring pages from our smallest and most creative platoon members!
