The contribution is part of an ongoing partnership to invest in veteran leaders
NEW YORK (PRWEB) NOVEMBER 08, 2018
Boeing recently announced a grant to The Mission Continues, a nonprofit organization that empowers veterans to find growth, purpose, and connection through community impact. With a notable footprint in over 55 cities nationwide, the funding will directly fuel The Mission Continues’ veteran volunteer force transforming under-resourced areas in Seattle, WA; St. Louis, MO; and Washington D.C.
The Mission Continues and Boeing share a deep-rooted commitment to veterans and positive community development. With Boeing’s contribution, The Mission Continues’ service platoons in these three cities will reach even greater local impact and engage increased numbers of veterans with a passion for service. Areas of focus for the service platoons address a wide range of challenges including neighborhood revitalization, homelessness, and educational inequality.
“For nearly seven years we have been proud to call Boeing a trusted partner and ally in our united efforts to empower veterans,” said Spencer Kympton, president of The Mission Continues. “Their renewed commitment to our operations in cities across the country advances our mission of veteran leaders building stronger communities through service.”
The investment extends beyond grant dollars, as Boeing employees have the opportunity to participate hands-on alongside service platoons as part of the growing movement of veteran-led collective action. In partnership since 2011, this latest development between Boeing and The Mission Continues further strengthens their charge to provide increased resources to veterans in pursuit of personal growth and civic engagement.
“We are honored to continue our support of The Mission Continues as part of our ongoing commitment to empowering veterans,” said Jason Pak, Veteran Outreach Lead at The Boeing Company. “This multi-city grant will provide The Mission Continues expanded capabilities for veteran engagement all while driving positive change in the communities Boeing employees call home.”
