Carlstadt, NJ— July 29, 2022 — Betson Enterprises team members joined staff from Jersey Cares in Carlstadt, NJ, to fill bags for Veterans experiencing homelessness with necessities such as first aid kits, hygiene products, rain ponchos, flashlights, and other items. Team members also created no-sew fleece blankets to provide Veterans warmth and comfort during the winter.

“Partnering with Jersey Cares allows for individualized corporate volunteer initiatives designed expressly for our employees to address community-identified needs,” said Evelyn Cortes – Human Resources Director for Betson Enterprises. “Supporting Veterans is an important initiative for the organization, and we are pleased to be able to create a volunteer event that allows our team members to show our support.”
