Flemington, New Jersey Mayor Betsy Driver, 55 Main Owner and Chef Jonas Gold, Mahn Consulting, LLC CEO and Founder Sharon Mahn, and long time Flemington resident and State Farm Agency owner Ed Mahn have joined forces with Head of Fundraising and Operation Jersey Cares active volunteer Dana Santella Gooditis to provide meals to our military veteran heroes in the tri-state area.
To add "icing on the cake" to the generous food donors, local area sports legends Ottis "OJ" Anderson, 1991 Superbowl MVP of the New York Giants, as well as Larry Holmes, former heavyweight boxing world champion, will personally log on a ZOOM call with those individuals and companies that contribute more than $500 to the charity organization. Mahn Consulting will provide a matching donation to OJ Anderson's Scholarship Fund, as well as Larry's Holmes' philanthropic organization that gives back to local hospitals.
"Although I am currently a New York City resident, I actually grew up in Flemington, New Jersey, and my dad Ed Mahn, still lives and works there" explained Sharon Mahn. "I think that it is important to give back to my hometown, and I have a special appreciation for assisting our United States veterans, as my dad was a Vietnam War-era army veteran, and twenty-four members of my extended family have also served our country in the armed forces."
Operation Jersey Cares is a non-profit that continuously supports those who are currently deployed, proud veterans, as well as our loyal military families. Operation Jersey Cares aims to "honor those men and women who provide us the blanket of freedom we all sleep so soundly under."
"We are truly all in this together, and it is vital at this critical juncture that we do our parts to assist our friends and neighbors, and those risking their lives to save ours" Sharon stated.
"I am blessed to have grown up in such a special place, and my childhood friend Dana has the biggest heart of anyone that I know. I am humbled to help Operation Jersey Cares, which is in my opinion one of the best charities focused on the needs of our current military members and veterans, and also has the most caring, dedicated selfless group of volunteers. Special thanks to Mayor Driver and Jonas Gold for organizing and executing this wonderful endeavor, as well as to OJ Anderson and Larry Holmes for their kindness and generous donation of their time."
