The Mission Continues and Wounded Warrior Atlanta Platoon engages local Veterans to complete service projects in the Atlanta area. Their first service project on a Habitat site took place on July 10th in Lithonia with Habitat for Humanity-DeKalb.
We were fortunate that a lot of the members had previous construction experience which made for a very productive day. The group worked on clearing out the living room, removing the flooring in the kitchen, sanding the walls, removing the old sinks and cabinets, and trimming the bushes outside.
We were honored to have them spend the day with us and look forward to working with these amazing volunteers again!
The Mission Continues empowers veterans facing the challenge of adjusting to life at home to find new missions. We redeploy veterans in their communities, so that their shared legacy will be one of action and service.
Wounded Warrior’s vision is to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history. Their purpose is to:
- To raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members.
- To help injured service members aid and assist each other.
- To provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members.
