Nearly 300 people marched in Randolph, New Jersey, yesterday to show their support for their hometown heroes serving in the war and returning from active service. The march also served as a fundraising event for programs, including a 211 helpline, that offer assistance to veterans and military families.
The Front Line Fund, created by the United Way in Morris, will benefit from the donations raised by the “Morris March for Military Families.” The United Way is partnering with the Chamber of Commerce, social service agencies, county governments and the New Jersey National Guard to identify programs that can assist local veterans with the following:
- Food stamps
- Substance Abuse
The “centerpiece” of the United Way veterans program is a 2-1-1 help line.
If you’re a veteran who has been injured while on active duty, contact Veterans Help Group, a veterans disability law firm.
