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

Harrison Sussman, 12, will have his bar mitzvah on Dec. 14. His bar mitzvah project entails collecting goods that will go to homeless vets.

"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."
