For Immediate Release: August 22, 2017, Parsippany, New Jersey
Source: Extreme Energy Solutions continues to aid our Nation’s heroes in need, by committing to assist Project Help, a non-profit organization created for the purpose of lending a hand to homeless, displaced, and disabled Veterans and their families. Extreme Energy Solutions sets aside a small portion of each of its product’s sales to be donated to this cause.
Green Tech company Extreme Energy Solutions Inc., had teamed up with the non-profit organization Project Help, a non-profit organization created for the purposes of assisting homeless, displaced, and disabled Veterans and their families. EES continued its partnership in promoting and supporting the cause during Project Help’s Open House, held in Parsippany, New Jersey.
Project Help’s Open House event, recently held in June of 2017, brought individuals, companies, small businesses, volunteers, and Veterans together with the intent to have a continued discussion on how to be of better service to Veterans in need. Board Members of Project Help spoke of the efforts and contributions they were making to the organization and encouraged other attendees to get involved if they were not yet taking steps to help Veterans.
One of the current initiatives of Project Help has been to get their mobile closet on the road, which can visit locations known for having a high concentration of homeless and displaced Veterans. This will enable Veterans to frequent the closet and gather up needed items, including clothing and toiletries; all to help Veterans prepare in finding work, so a Veteran can get on their feet.
Project Help’s Mobile Closet consists of a former school bus, donated by George’s Salvage, of Newton, New Jersey, which is being converted into a “closet” on wheels. It will be retrofitted with racks and storage abilities so Veterans can easily search and choose clothing and other items they may need, at no charge to the Veteran.
“Since most homeless or displaced Veteran’s do not have transportation, it was necessary to create a program where Veterans can get their needs met without the struggle of finding a ride to a faraway destination. The converted bus was a perfect solution to the situation,” said Sandy Mitchell, founder and Executive Director of Project Help.
“When we heard of what Project Help was trying to accomplish, we were right on board with it, and so we decided to donate some resources and time to the mobile closet,” contributed Samuel K. Burlum, CEO and President of Extreme Energy Solutions, Inc.
“We have supported other events in the past with Sandy Mitchell, aimed at raising awareness and proceeds to help Veterans. When the idea was shared with Extreme Energy Solutions, we were confident that Sandy would be successful in building out the Mobile Closet. This resonated with us and so we decided to move forward in aiding Project Help,” continued Burlum.
In the past, Extreme Energy Solutions was a major supporter of the “Salute to Our Vets” event; a two-day event full of live musical entertainment, showcasing partnered non-profit Veteran causes. This event includes the military and vendors, who together, draw in local government officials, the community, businesses that support Veterans, public figures, and Veterans themselves. The collaborative effort seeks to raise awareness of the growing homeless veteran epidemic, while also raising funds to be used for directly helping Veterans in need. “Salute to Our Vets” was held in Parsippany, New Jersey at Veteran’s Park, 2014.
Extreme Energy Solutions Inc., has a built-in cause marketing program, which dedicates a small portion of every sale of its products, Extreme Kleaner, H2O Energy Flow, and Extreme Xtra Fuel Treatments, to be set aside and put toward helping community causes and non-profit organizations. Extreme Energy Solutions supports through its cause marketing programs, homeless, displaced, and/or disabled Veterans; STEM Education programs; the arts; environmental conservation; small business advocacy; and other community causes where the proceeds are directly assisting those in need.
“Extreme Energy Solutions is committed to working with Project Help and will offer up part of its cause marketing efforts to help raise awareness and action in assisting Veterans and their families in need,” concluded Burlum. Extreme Energy Solutions Board Members were on hand at the Project Help Open House in lending the Company’s support to the cause and to be recognized for their previous contributions to Project Help.
Other companies recognized at the Project Help Open House included Allied Wealth Partners, George’s Salvage, Morris County VoTech, Dover Brake and Clutch, Moove in Storage, Hollister Construction, and close supporters and volunteers which have donated financial resources, time, services, or other forms of support in assisting Project Help get its mobile closet on the road.
