In honor of Martin Luther King Day, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan sent a personal letter and donated meal boxes to veterans volunteering for The Mission Continues, an organization works to "empower veterans who are adjusting to life at home to find purpose through community impact."

To support those volunteering, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex provided food, and revealed that they hoped to help volunteer in-person in the coming months. "In honor of this day of service, and in recognition of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and all that he stood for, we want to send our thanks and gratitude to the team at The Mission Continues," the Sussexes wrote.

"We're so proud of all the work you're doing to support your community and hope you enjoy this small token of our appreciation," Meghan and Harry continued. "Thank you for your service—today and every day. We look forward to joining you soon! ... Stay safe, and keep up the great work."

Sharing the letter, and photos of their volunteers with the food donations, on Instagram, the official The Mission Continues account wrote, "We'd like to send a huge thank you to The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, along with Archewell Foundation, for fueling the volunteers of our LA Service Platoon with lunch yesterday, so they can continue their hard work at the Compton VFW and help those living in the Compton community! We're truly honored to have their support! #MLKDayON."
