Freeholders to present Veterans’ Benefits Expo on Tuesday at Kean University in Union

The Union County Freeholder Board and the Office of Veteran Services will present the “Know Your Benefits Expo,” a comprehensive presentation of benefits and services on Tuesday, August 28 from 2:00 pm to Veterans 7:00 pm at the STEM Center at Kean University, at 1075 Morris Avenue in Union Township.

“We are all honored and grateful for the many military personnel and their families who live in Union County, and we have developed this program to assist in their health and well-being,” said Freeholder Chairman Sergio Granados. “We certainly encourage our Veterans to attend and learn more about what benefits they may have.”

The program is being offered as part of the County’s UC HERO initiative, which was launched by the Freeholder Board in 2016. The program builds on Union County’s longstanding services for veterans by working to enhance opportunities for education, employment and well-being for eligible veterans, active duty service members and their families.

UC-HERO continues to develop this year as part of Chairman Granados’s 2018 “Moving Union County Forward” UC HEART (Helping, Empower, Advocating, Reaching and Teaching) initiatives fostering personal growth and community service.
