J.F. Kiely Construction Co., a utility construction company headquartered in Long Branch, N.J., proudly supports the Unbroken Warriors 1st Annual Touch-a-truck event in Holmdel Township by providing several pieces of construction equipment for public display.
"Supporting our military veterans with a wonderful event like this is an easy decision for us," said John M. Kiely, president of J.F. Kiely Construction Co. "My father and I have always believed in supporting the men and women of our military for their loyalty and dedication to our Country."
Unbroken Warriors was founded this year by seven individuals who are dedicated to fundraising money to send veterans afflicted with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) to a residential trauma treatment facility. Our hope is for Unbroken Warriors to make access to PTSD interventions more accessible to all military service veterans. At costs of up to $1,500 A DAY, our heroes need our help to get back to their lives without such a financial burden.
Our Touch-a-truck day is a child-centered event where you can find military, emergency response, construction, and commercial vehicles, along with motorcycles and farm equipment. This is an amazing opportunity for children of all ages to explore transportation by climbing in the driver's seat and meeting the men and women who use these vehicles every day. For one admission price, each child will receive a plastic construction hat and be on their way to discover what's inside their favorite vehicles or the vehicles they see on the road each day.
100 percent of all donations will go to the Unbroken Warriors fund. This year's event is from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Sept. 10 at the Dearborn Market, 2170 Route 35, Holmdel, NJ.
