Blitz Chiropractic Center has been a proud supporter of our countries military veterans for many years. Dr. Blitz was elected as one of the New Jersey chiropractors to provide chiropractic care to the men and women who served our country in Iraq and Afghanistan. These veterans are entitled to visit Blitz Chiropractic Center after returning from war. They will be offered a complete orthopedic and neurological examination and spinal x-rays if needed.
Once Dr. Blitz is able to determine if there is an effective treatment for their condition, any and all medical care will be provided to our veterans at no charge. Dr. Blitz will extend his services to our veterans for up to 6 months as a way of thanking our brave men and women for serving our country.
Dr. Blitz is also involved with supporting Building Homes for Heroes. Building Homes for Heroes is a non-profit, non partisan organization founded in 2006. Building Homes for Heroes is strongly committed to rebuilding lives and supporting the brave men and women who were injured while serving our country during the times of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The organization builds or modifies homes and gifts them, mortgage-free, to veterans and their families.
Blitz Chiropractic Center is honored to be a participant in the support of these men and women who have loyalty and courage by serving our country. In doing so these homes not only help to remove the family's financial burden, they help to restore the individual's freedom and enable the veteran to lead a more independent and productive civilian life. To further assist veterans the organization has added programs including financial planning services, family funding and emergency support. Each home recipient is provided with a financial planning representative. This program is designed to provides a new, and sometimes first time homeowners with advice and guidance needed to maintain home expenses and to plan for a successful future. The organization gifted 17 homes in 2013 and 25 to 30 homes in 2014. The organization strives to keep fundraising and administrative costs to a minimum, thus only a small percentage of funds are allocated to overhead costs. In 2013, the organization had a program service percentage of 94.9% related activities.
Each and every year, Jason Evanchik, a local community member, heads a very successful fundraising event for Building Homes for Heroes. Last year, on 4/28/14, Jason Evanchik held his 7th annual New Jersey golf outing at the Forsgate Country Club in Monroe Township, New Jersey. The event was successfully hosted by Jason and his dedicated family for the seventh consecutive year, setting a new record by raising $92,000 to support the building of homes for 23 severely wounded men and women of the military. Building Homes for Heroes anticipates building or renovating up to 35 homes throughout the country in 2015.
Blitz Chiropractic Center continues to donate to this great organization as a result of the hard work donated by the Evanchik family to Building Homes for Heroes. Please see Dr. Blitz if you and your family are able to donate money, your time or to organize a fundraiser in your community for Building Homes for Heroes. Dr. Blitz is proud to be involved with both military programs and will continue to do so throughout his chiropractic career.
