  • To “The Mission continues” I am seeking volunteer work; seeking full fillment. I especially like opportunities to work outside. Memorial Day is coming and thought you might need help with putting flags out, cleaning parks, etc. I am seeking 2 week days a month or every other week for 4-5 hours.
    Thank you,

    • Hello Teresa – The Mission Continues does have a Memorial Day event (placing flags in cemeteries); more information is at bit.ly/2EcEPpe. For other events, please check the Mission Continues Houston’s Facebook page or check https://missioncontinues.org/events. You can enter your zip code to see what is happening near you. Thank you for getting involved!
