Veterans Count Launches Inaugural Lakes Region Golf Tournament, Raising $83,000 for NH’s Military Families

By | In the News

Nearly 100 golfers from across the Lakes Region and state hit the course for a cause on Monday, July 20, for the inaugural Veterans Count Lakes Region Golf Tournament at Laconia Country Club. Their generous support helped raise $83,000 for Veterans Count, a program of Easter Seals, which provides critical and timely financial assistance and services when no other resource is available to veterans, service members and their families, to ensure their dignity, health and overall well-being.

Since 2007, Veterans Count has served over 9,000 individuals in a variety of ways including suicide prevention, homelessness, substance abuse treatment, employment, transportation, and mental health issues resulting from post-traumatic stress disorder and/or traumatic brain injury. Veterans Count supports families through a care coordination model and provides emergency financial assistance for food, home maintenance, housing, rent, fuel assistance, utilities, vehicle repair, gasoline, medical bills, and child care.
