On Oct 6th, The Mission Continues Bronx Platoon mobilized to help DreamYard Project with their mission to build pathways to equity and opportunity through the arts. During that event, we prepped the school's library for a major renovation.
DreamYard needs our help once again. This time, they need our help to finish the last phase of their library renovation. The school's library used to have furniture that was used by middle school kids but now that the library is part of the elementary school, that furniture is unusable by kids in grades K-5. The platoon will be spending the afternoon assembling furniture to ensure that the youth of Grant Ave Elementary are able to use the library to its fullest potential.
The entrance to enter the school is on E 164th and Morris Ave. You'll need your ID to sign in at the security desk.
The event is also listed to go until 4pm but if we get done fast, we'll be leaving well before that time.
We look forward to seeing you there.
What To Wear :
Clothes you don't mind getting dirty.
There's street parking available.
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.
