The Mission Continues
Mission VetCheck: Ongoing Opportunity
TMC is working alongside ThriveNYC and the NYC Dept. of Veterans’ Services on a month-long mission of checking in on the well-being of New York City Veterans across the five boroughs during the COVID-19 crisis. Goal: call every veteran in New York City and connect those in need to free resources that can address their vital needs (food, mental health, COVID-19 testing, etc.). Even if you can spare an hour a week to help make calls, it will be extremely helpful.
#ThankItForward: Ongoing May Opportunity
National “Thank It Forward” Campaign until the end of May. #ThankItForward by sharing your message of thanks with community partners. This is an opportunity to share gratitude and stand in solidarity with hometown heroes. We are here for them today, and The Mission Continues will be here for them long after this pandemic has passed to aid in their recovery.
