The Veterans Fair will take place at the Verona Community Center, 800 Bloomfield Ave., on Saturday, Sept. 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The event is designed to provide veterans with assistance in finding jobs and housing, as well as making decisions about their future in a challenging economy.
“Our military veterans — men and women alike — deserve our support in return for the sacrifices they made for us," Frelinghuysen said. “This Veterans Fair will provide real life advice, counseling and networking opportunities.”
The Kearfott Corporation, Comfort Keepers, New Jersey Fallen Soldiers Foundation, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, New Jersey Department of Military and Veterans Affairs, Veterans Crisis Line, Bloomfield Veterans Center, Halos for Angels, VA Transportation Network Foundation, Marotta Controls, Passaic County Office of Veterans Affairs, Veterans Chamber of Commerce, Montclair State University Veterans Association, Carpenters Local 254, Honeywell International, Real Estate Mortgage Network, Community Food Bank and other groups will also participate.
“So many of our veterans are having difficulties re-adjusting to life as a civilian, making decisions about their future, and finding jobs and housing,” said Frelinghuysen, a veteran of the Vietnam conflict. “What better way for us to thank them for their service and sacrifices than by helping them in their transition?”
