Leave a #LegacyOfService

A mural of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, created at a 2019 Service Project

The Martin Luther King Jr. National Day of Service is a day we salute those who fought, and continue to fight, for equality and justice both in and out of uniform. We continue to serve because there is still work to be done, and veterans are uniquely suited to affect positive change. 

We have seen through our on-the-ground operations that communities across the country are growing stronger because veterans are finding ways to apply their skills and leadership at home. The Mission Continues offers the opportunity for veterans and community members to give back to their community and become stronger citizens.

This year, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought unprecedented challenges to millions of families—food insecurity and financial hardship among them—and it is estimated that nearly one in six Americans will struggle with food insecurity as a result. 

 

Serve With Us

Because our veteran volunteers serve where the need is greatest, this year, we’re leading a collective effort that empowers veterans to serve in new ways and helps families recover from the pandemic. During the month of January, service platoons across the country will organize virtual and in-person service events that exemplify the values Dr. King championed, honor his legacy and tackle the challenges our communities are facing like never before. Please join us in whatever capacity you feel safest and, together, we’ll leave a legacy of service.

I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality and freedom for their spirits.
