Biomed Technologies partners with OPERATION CHILLOUT.
MOUNT ARLINGTON, NEW JERSEY, NOVEMBER 15, 2013 — Biomed Technologies has partnered with OPERATION CHILLOUT – an all-volunteer not for profit coalition dedicated to ending the crisis of homeless veterans. There are over 7,000 homeless veterans in New Jersey. With this staggering number, OPERATION CHILLOUT works to help these veterans and their families.
Each Winter, OPERATION CHILLOUT collects and distributes backpacks filled with new warm clothing and basic survival gear to homeless veterans in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Their mobile Veteran’s Rapid Response Unit provides immediate outreach for homeless veterans to access and respond to their needs.
Biomed Technologies will be collecting donations at their Mount Arlington headquarters which can be dropped off or sent via mail. Items being collected are New / Unused Warm Clothing and Personal / Travel Size Toiletries. Monetary Donations in the form of Checks are to be made out to OPERATION CHILLOUT.
Biomed Technologies will be matching donations up to $5,000.00. After 12/13/2013, OPERATION CHILLOUT can be contacted directly for donations.
Together we can make an impact on this problem. And what a better way to say ‘thank you’ to a veteran than during the holidays! For information on OPERATION CHILLOUT, please visit http://operationchillout.org/support-us
