As a Platoon, we will have come full circle on 11/12/16. Last November, we began our first project introducing our Platoon to the Rainier Beach community by cleaning up these same pathways, while having fun. During our past year in the Community, we have supported the businesses along Rose St and the Ethiopian Community Center through cleanup, the Rainier Beach Urban Garden, Rainier Beach High School, and these important Pathways the students use to get to and from the Library and High School.
We will assist with curbside cleanup, graffiti removal, painting, weeding, and mulching. While we're at it, we'll swing a few hammers, and fire up the saws. There will be projects for all, as we aim to restore this well-used path (a main route for kids heading to the library after school) to it's original beauty.
Lunch? No worries....we will provide lunch.
Why this weekend? Because it's Veterans Day Weekend and we are #ReportingForDuty. Let's show everyone the power that The Mission Continues brings to the table.
What To Wear :
Boots and clothes you don't mind getting dirty
What To Bring :
Reusable water bottle
Parking in SAARS parking lot - 9000 Rainier Ave S (Across from the High School Football Field)
Inclement Weather Plan :
Bring Rain Gear (just in case). After all....it is the PNW.
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.
