NOLA 1st Service Platoon will be conducting our Martin Luther King Day of Service event in partnership with Sankofa Market.
We are very excited to be working with Sankofa Market and supporting them in the amazing work that they do in our great city. Sankofa's Fresh Stop Market is where neighborhood residents of the Lower Ninth Ward can purchase healthy, fresh and affordable food, most of which is grown locally at Sankofa's own gardens.
Sankofa's goal is to support the creation of a local environment that promotes positive health outcomes and builds healthier communities for generations to come. To learn more about Sankofa visit their website at http://sankofanola.org/
We will be doing light construction and area beautification. Specifically, we will be putting in a deck with wheelchair access, shade sails and a large display table for the selling of fruits and vegetables.
No experience is necessary. We will have professionals on hand to guide you every step of the project.
Children are welcome at this event. As always, lunch and refreshments will be provided. Please register so that we can provide the right amount of food for this event.
Let's Charlie Mike!

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.
