Edison Youth Aspires to Help Homeless Vets


EDISON, NJ - A young man from Edison has set out to help needy veterans.

"I am going to be receiving donations to fill up duffel bags with socks and small toiletries," Sussman writes on his GoFundMe page. "Once we have filled these bags, we will go to New York and hand them out to homeless veterans. I hope to reach my goal of $1,000 by December 9."
