We continue our on-going series "Homeruns For Heroes"
All season designated military-related charities will get donations when BlueClaw players hit homeruns as part of a joint partnership with the OceanFirst Foundation.
2013 is the fifth year of the program which, through 2012, raised over $100,000 for local military-based charities.
American Recreational Military Services (A.R.M.S.) is a 501 (c) (3)) public charity. A.R.M.S was founded in 2003 by a group of grass roots volunteers who wanted to give something back to the military and their families. In a matter of months, this small organization has grown from just a handful to more than 325 volunteers in the tri-state area.
A.R.M.S. continues to provide services to local armories in this region. A.R.M.S. supports the area unit Family Readiness Groups, as well as provide direct assistance to family members in need. In addition, A.R.M.S. has been working with local military bases to provide quality of life issues for soldiers and their families.
A.R.M.S. first effort was directed in soliciting the donation of items to be packed and shipped to troops overseas For more information call 732-890-4914.
