We wish to thank Sara Everett and The Mission Continues for her valued volunteer time with the Joshua Tree National Park Association and the Desert Institute. Sara completes a six month “Fellowship” through The Mission Continues providing services as an Information Specialist at the Visitor Centers, as a Field Class Representative with the Desert Institute, and she has managed our social media channels. If you follow us on Facebook, you would have seen her daily posts of life and activities in and around the park. Her quality content has increased the Facebook views to over 18,000 for a single posting.
The Mission Continues empowers veterans facing the challenge of adjusting to life at home to find new missions. They redeploy veterans in their communities, so that their shared legacy will be one of action and service. Through the Mission Continues, veterans serve their country in new ways by engaging in their innovative and action-oriented programs. The Mission Continues’ Fellowship harness veterans’ strengths, skills, and their compassion and empowers them to volunteer with non-profit organizations in their community on a daily basis.
We are proud to have participated in this valuable program to support our veterans.
