This is a Call to Action in honor of the legacy of Hank Martinez and a service project we are taking on for Dr. Martin Luther King Day 2016.
This project will consist of light to heavy duty work. We will be painting, moving furniture, light clean up.
We are looking for anyone with any skill level to join us in brining smiles and supportive help to a community that just lost a legend. They are trying to keep their spirits up and have a lot on their plate so we are stepping in to show that together we will continue his work and fix up this building so they can bring much needed social services to community members. We will be joining the Latino Resource Institute and UIC Community Outreach as well to make this service project a success.
Friends and family are encouraged to come and join us in an awesome day working and remembering Hank Martinez.

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.
