All proceeds from the event will go to Operation Chillout, which is an all-volunteer outreach dedicated to ending to the crisis of homelessness for veterans, men and women throughout New Jersey and parts of Northeastern Pennsylvania.
Operation Chillout was founded on Dec. 21, 2000 to help a group of homeless VietNam veterans living in the open under a railroad trestle in North Jersey. It became a registered 501c3 not for profit organization in 2011.
It’s Mission Statement: “We believe in the inherent worth of every homeless man, woman and child and provide emergency supplies and survival gear to the most vulnerable members of our communities wherever we encounter them. We bring our care to all homeless people without regard to their religious affiliation, ethnic heritage or state of life.”
