Veterans Day is this Wednesday and it’s always fantastic to see many New Jersey businesses do what's best for our military vets. The convenience store chain QuickCheck raised $109,000 that will benefit military veterans and military families throughout the Garden State. Thanks to a successful golf outing and other fundraiser events, $45,000 of that $109,000 will support Bridging The Gap in Manasquan.
