Project Help, the non-profit organization, whose purpose is to assist Veterans and their families in need, is getting a little help themselves from race car drivers from different racing perspectives, to help educate communities across the board about the importance of supporting those that have served in branches of the military, and now after they have served, find themselves and their families dealing with hard times. The 501c3 non-profit, based in Wantage, New Jersey, and is led by long time Veteran Advocate, Sandy Mitchell, who is the Founder and CEO of Project Help.
Project Help serves as a resource center. Project Help is connected with a number of other Veteran focused organizations, some that are community non-profit based and some that are directly affiliated with Veteran services in the areas of health care, job assistance, job training, employment, counseling and support groups.
“Employment is the first defense against Veteran homelessness. When a Veteran can find a job that will provide them with a reasonable standard of living and compensation package (livable wage), the Veteran is able to hold themselves up by their own efforts,” stated Sandy Mitchell.
Unfortunately most Veterans cannot find work that is in line with their previous assignment in the military, thus they must become trained and acquire new skills for job placement. Access and the ability to pay for education go hand in hand with gainful employment. Project Help has stepped in and assisted Veterans in the past that were just a few yards away from completing their higher education goals, with assistance from the Project Help Hardship Fund.
Project Help Launched its Mobile Closet, a bus retrofitted to serve as a mobile campus full of clothes, used laptop computers for use that day to prep job resumes, and other personal grooming-hygiene products for Veterans that are in search clothing and needs for a job interview. This service is a FREE service to Veterans, as all of the items on the bus are donated by private individuals and businesses that help fund the mobile closet’s operation.
Project Help has help connect homeless Veterans with job opportunities, with employers who understand the importance of putting Veterans back to work in gainful employment. Many of these employers are also Veterans that are also small business owners.
One of those companies that took to heart the importance of assisting Veterans in need was the green tech firm, Extreme Energy Solutions.
Extreme Energy Solutions has been a corporate supporter of Project Help since its inception, and since has lent its staff, executive team, and race car drivers to help share the message of Project Help and assist in carrying out events and programs that directly help Veterans and their families.
“Helping Veterans have always been important to us. We have hired Veterans in the past, and even some of our corporate leadership has served this country,” mentioned Samuel K. Burlum of Extreme Energy Solutions.
“Our race drivers and brand ambassadors are have a large audience of followers, and we thought leveraging our drivers relationship with their fans would provide an opportunity for Project Help to expand its footprint in sharing its message.”
