According to the United States Department of Housing (HUD) estimates over 47,000 Veterans in which formally served their nation go without on any giving night, which are just the Veterans in which Federal and State agencies can account for. There are countless others in which are completely off the radar because they do not receive any benefits of any kind for their service.

Sandy Mitchell, Director of Project Help, recently organized a team of community leaders, students, and individuals from the business community to combine resources in combating the issue of Veteran Homelessness. Among the founders and partners, are Extreme Energy Solutions, Inc., and their CEO, Samuel K. Burlum.

Extreme and Burlum have been known for helping other Veteran Causes including Save A Warrior, Wounded Warrior Project, Salute to Our Vets and other fundraisers held by the Spirit of the Arts Foundation aimed at providing resources toward homeless and disabled veterans. Extreme once again steps up to the plate in helping Project Help.

“One of our most serious social issues we have today, is how we treat Veterans after they sacrifice their lives for our freedoms and put their lives on the line in protecting our country,” contributed Samuel K. Burlum, CEO and President of Extreme Energy Solutions, Inc., “We need to take better care of our Veterans if we are to have a strong military.”

“If we do not care for our Veterans, the message rings clear that we have no respect for those whom fought with their lives to protect our freedoms; it is demoralizing and a matter of national security.”

Burlum and his company is now a fellow founder in the organization and contributor in providing some of the seed resources in moving Project Help forward.

“I am super glad to be working with Samuel Burlum and his team,” added Sandy Mitchell, Director of Project Help, “He has proven to be an asset to other non-profit organizations, and we work well together.”

Mitchell and Burlum served together on the Board of Directors of the former non-profit organization, Spirit of the Arts Foundation. Burlum was named Treasurer for the Project Help Board of Directors.

Project help is a support mechanism for homeless veterans and their families whereby the can stop at any one of the SOSvets Closets, by Catholic Charities, in four counties so far, and take whatever clothing and items they need at no cost to the Veteran.

The organization has a network of individuals whom donate their services to Veterans in need. This network extends their expertise from seamstresses/tailors to beauticians and counselors.

Project Help is on a constant mission to gather up collections of items for men, women, and children, including but not limited to, such items like baseball caps, shorts, tee shirts, underwear, socks, diapers, sun screen, toiletries, handi-wipes and diaper wipes, shoes and business attire, for redistribution for these men and women and their families whom may be less fortunate.

Aside from accepting donated items at one of the authorized drop sites, Project Help also looks to host a number of fundraisers, with the proceeds being forwarded to one of their project partners which utilize these funds in getting Veterans off the streets. 100% of these proceeds are made available to Vets and their families with no administrative fees or cost taken by Catholic Charities.

In addition to Extreme Energy Solutions, of Ogdensburg, New Jersey; Project Help has partnered with the Mt. Olive High School, Decorus Film & Photo, the Lions Club, American Legions, surrounding area VFW’s, and Catholic Charities have committed in assisting Project Help with its mission.

Project Help offers multiple options on how an individual, business, and/or a community organization can contribute in raising awareness and resources for Veterans in need. One of the ways one can help is by making a simple donation to one of the drop locations of items on the requested list. Another is that a business and/or an organization can request to set up a community event, including a tricky tray or 5k run; set up a collection day; special event day with entertainment; and/or charity concert.

Project Help offers many opportunities to assist Veterans. If you and your business/community organization would like to assist Project help you can call Sandy Mitchell at 973-875-2068, or reach out via email sandy@mitchellclan.com. Project help are seeking Volunteers for a number of scheduled events and to assist in public awareness to the problem.

“One of the best ways a private citizen, whom did not serve in the military, can serve their nation, is to serve their and assist the nation’s Veterans,” concluded Burlum.
