In October Chicago 1st Service Platoon took on the challenge of creating a garden for the students at Burke Elementary School. Because winter was approaching we decided to do it in two stages. Stage one was completed in October now it's time to finish the project. I'm calling all platoon members and community members to come out and help us finish this project. The garden will provide fresh produce for the students and their families and be used as an educational tool to teach the students about healthy eating.
What To Wear :
Comfortable clothing closed toe shoes
Plenty of free on street parking
Inclement Weather Plan :
Project will take place unless there are extreme weather conditions
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.
