The Mission Continues
Operation Charm City Charge and the Puerto Rico Service Platoon
In 2018, an NFL-BWF Healthy Lifestyles and Creating Community grant enabled The Mission Continues to found a Puerto Rico service platoon. The group engaged local veterans and supported long-term recovery efforts in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria on the island. The platoon worked to rebuild the hardest communities communities hardest hit. Through the grant The Mission Continues
- increased the number of projects in Puerto Rico;
- grew platoon membership;
- provided two additional platoon leaders for recruitment, community development, and civic participation on the island.
Additionally, in 2019, NFL-BWF proudly supported The Mission Continues Operation Charm City Charge (OC3) to improve neighborhoods in inner-city Baltimore, MD. This investment funded an additional 75 veterans who arrived in Baltimore to participate in OC3 platoons. Benefits to veterans for a week of physical exertion, personal growth, connectedness, and community impact.
