Got Your 6 and The Mission Continues held a special Service Project Event at Universal Studios last week.
Got Your 6 is a Hollywood-backed campaign devoted to changing the conversation surrounding veterans. Got Your 6 is a military term that means “I’ve got your back.” Check out GotYour6.org for more info.
The event was a huge success! Led by Got Your 6 Managing Director Chris Marvin and national veteran nonprofit, The Mission Continues, over 250 veterans, volunteers and celebs such as NBCU President and COO, Ron Meyer, J.J. Abrams, Tom Arnold, Greg Grunberg, Jon Favreau, Hannah Simone, Brandon Routh and more spent the morning filling more than 5,000 backpacks with food for food-insecure children. Veterans and celebrities then delivered the backpacks to more than a dozen LAUSD schools.
