Oticon announced the Oticon Government Services Team’s participation in a Flag Day 5K Run/Walk to raise funds for NJ Hope for Veterans. The June 13 event took place on the VA Campus in Lyons, NJ. As part of the Flag Day celebration, Oticon employees also donated non-perishable food items to stock the non-profit’s Veterans Food Pantry. NJ Hope for Veterans is said to be the largest charity serving at-risk veterans in New Jersey, providing emergency, transitional, and permanent housing for homeless veterans and their families.
“The Oticon Government Services team is proud to support Veteran Affairs and Department of Defense audiologists working to improve hearing and quality of life for our nation’s veterans and active duty military personnel,” said David Horowitz, AuD, director, Oticon Government Services. “Volunteer opportunities, like the Flag Day Race and Homes for Our Troops home builds, create another way for us to show support and appreciation for the sacrifices made by our nation’s veterans.”
The Oticon team participating in the Flag Day 5K Run/Walk included veterans who served during the Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan conflicts and honored Oticon veteran families, including the family of Crystal Wade, whose son Seaman Recruit Jeremiah Devon Wade is on active duty.
