The Mission Continues
Operation Bayou City Blitz
The Mission Continues (TMC) empowers veterans, addressing their need to serve and demonstrating their talent and skills to the local community while also improving local communities and increasing the military-civilian understanding and appreciation. TMC conducts annual large-scale veteran empowerment and community improvement operations, with tremendous success. In June 2020, The Mission Continues will activate veterans from the Houston and Gulf Coast region, as well as veteran leaders from across the country, for a week of service projects in communities affected by Hurricane Harvey. TMC will partner with local community organizations to produce significant and sustainable positive change in neighborhoods still recovering from Hurricane Harvey. This grant, made possible by a partnership between the Bob Woodruff Foundation and the Qatar Harvey Fund, will provide personal growth and empowerment for 500 local veterans and 100 veterans from across the country who participate in Operation Bayou Blitz, and will improve the community resources for innumerable veterans who reside in these storm-damaged areas.
