UNION, NJ – The Union-based New Jersey Veterans Network (NJVN) hosted a business suit and attire clothing drive at the Union VFW helping veterans dress for success.
"This drive was a little different from your traditional clothing drive because our focus was to collect clothing that can help our veterans with employment or business events,” said NJVN President Michael Boll.
The effort produced over 400 business suits and about 1,000 other various pieces of business clothing. “Our charity is extremely fortunate to have the overwhelming support from the community and various social clubs throughout the state,” said Boll.
Boll said starting next week, NJVN will begin distributing the suits and clothing to disabled veterans from the Lyons VA Hospital, Operation Valor, Bergen County Veterans Services, East Orange VA Hospital and Veterans Haven North/South.
The New Jersey Veterans Network accepts new team members. Anyone interested in joining should contact Michael Boll at Mdbollio@optonline.net or 973-332-1556.
