What an incredible set of Summer Service Slam weekends we’ve had! We worked hard, made an impact, and had fun in the process. That’s what it’s all about.
Thanks to our incredible volunteers who made these weekends go from a plan on paper to a real experience, and hopefully, to fond memories for all.
Much love to the long-time volunteer champions who stepped up to share their remarkable expertise and aspirations with all of us. And a high five to our incredible partners who will launch from this weekend’s foundation even more impact in their communities.
This summer 250 veterans from across the country are putting an end to #summerdaze and reporting for duty with The Mission Continues to kick-off our first ever Summer Service Slam!
We’re hosting eight events in all five regions coast to coast. This July, for three consecutive weekends veterans will deploy to cities within their regions for a weekend of impact, personal growth and camaraderie. Our goal for these veterans is to leave the weekend with new skills, motivation and an expanded network of civic leaders to continue their mission of service at home.
The Mission Continues teamed up with Fox Sports Midwest, Boeing and Lowes on Saturday for the Summer Service Slam. The collaboration, now in its fifth year, brings together volunteers from across the St. Louis metro area for a day of service. This year’s project mobilized veterans and volunteers in support of the Jackie Joyner-Kersee Foundation (JJK Foundation) in East. St. Louis.
