It’s one of the reasons the USS Continuum exists. We’re “Star Trek Enthusiasts” – people who are not just dreaming about that optimistic future, but people who are looking for ways to make it a reality.
At our general meeting on August 20th, the Continuum will hold a food drive to benefit Manna Food Pantries. Members are asked to bring at least one bag of groceries to the meeting.

From March to May, millions of people across this nation will take a part in “The Great American Cleanup,” a program of Keep America Beautiful. Volunteers pick up trash, organize recycling drives, plant trees, and do other projects to keep this country looking great!
The Continuum will be involved with GAC in two ways:
1) We plan to be at Pensacola’s Great American Cleanup Kick-off event on March 20 at the Hawkshaw Memorial, organized by Clean & Green.
2) From March to May, we’re asking people to submit photos on how they’re cleaning up. No matter how big the group (even if it’s just a single worker)… no matter how long they spend in a day cleaning up… no matter what the location. We’re wanting pictures as to who was involved, where they were, and what they did. Send them to email@example.com.
We’re looking to have this site covered, showing how we’re cleaning up!
