Our partners at the Normandy Schools Collaborative and Beyond Housing have put out a call for volunteers to assist with their annual Beyond the Backpack back to school event. Please join us in answering the call and supporting the youth of Normandy. This event provides supplies, books, family resources and more to assure that students in the district have everything they need to succeed. Volunteers will cover a variety of tasks including supervising games, handing out supplies, and other needs. We will be there in a support role, and work with the volunteer team from Beyond Housing.'

What To Wear :

Inclement Weather Plan :
The event can take place indoors in case of rain.
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.
