Event Overview

The Mission Continues Newark Platoon is collecting coats, hats, gloves, and scarves to donate to The New Jersey Veteran’s Network and Never Alone Again in Teaneck. We need your help on collection day to help collect the items and sort the items collected so that they can be distributed to the organizations. This event also has a socially distant aspect as well. If you would like to donate a coat you can visit 1 of 3 drop off boxes located at various American Legions. They are: American Legion Post 310 in Little Ferry, NJ, American Legion Post 58 in Englewood, NJ, and American Legion post 170 in Rochelle Park, NJ. All the drop boxes are near the bar areas. If you drop off at one of these locations then please snap a selfie and email it to jgonzalez@missioncontinues.org so that we can create a collage to honor our social distance donors. Please don’t forget your mask and please dress warm. We will be outside but there are 3 firepits in the Pavilion where we will be. Volunteers will be paired into a team of 2 or 3 and will rotate 1 hour shifts.

What To Wear
