One of our Los Angeles Platoon Leaders, Dawn, Jackson, has planned a #HerMission project and you are invited to participate.
As part of the #HerMission initiative, The Mission Continues advocates for cultural transformation (both within the Veteran community and in the general public) by recognizing the service and contributions of women who have served in the military.
Many women do not self-identify as Veterans and have a lower participation rate in Veteran events and organizations. In order to reach more women and discover critical potential needs, such as social isolation and food insecurity, The Mission Continues’ Los Angeles Service Platoon has created a special community service event specifically for women and women Veterans in the local area!
The Mission Continues Los Angeles service platoon invites persons identifying as female to participate in this special #HerMission Project at Girls Today Women Tomorrow (GTWT) Community House. GTWT empowers young women in Los Angeles with the support of Alma Family Services. The #HerMission campaign is our effort to recognize those successes and the incredible women who fuel The Mission Continues and to unify and catalyze a diverse group of women veterans who will shape our future.
Space is limited, and registration is required to participate: https://bit.ly/LA-HerMission.
We are returning to the space to update the outdoor wooden structures first built together pre-pandemic, refresh the garden and organize the activity rooms for this project. While everyone’s effort is valued and appreciated, we ask that volunteers respect this space open to women only.
Each participant will receive a gardening kit, including pots, tools, seeds, and education on the therapeutic and health benefits of gardening and growing your own food.
This will be a child-friendly project to minimize possible barriers that might prevent local women Veterans and volunteers from participating.
