Betson partners with Jersey Cares

Team members at Betson Enterprises, leading distributor of arcade and amusement equipment, have 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.

Jersey Cares is a non-profit organisation, established in 1993, that works to increase civic engagement in New Jersey by coordinating volunteer opportunities to address community-identified needs.

Evelyn Cortes, human resources director for Betson Enterprises, said: “Partnering with Jersey Cares allows for individualized corporate volunteer initiatives designed expressly for our employees to address community-identified needs.”

“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.”

Team members from Betson’s other offices across the country wrote personalised cards for Veterans to thank them for their service.  All completed Veterans Hope Packs will be donated to Backpacks for Life.
