News Radio 96-7, WGIR-AM 610 and iHeartRadio Team Up with Veterans Count to Support Our Military Families
In a state-wide, patriotic show of support for all that our veterans, service members and their families have sacrificed, Veterans Count, a program of Easterseals NH, in partnership with iHeartRadio, will take to the airwaves for the 3rd Annual “Make 12-Hours Count” Radio Thon, presented by LTC Partners. The broadcast will be March 22, from 6am – 6pm on News Radio 96-7, WGIR-AM 610 as well as iHeartRadio.com.
The Radio Thon will feature 12 hours of compelling content about the challenges faced by military families and how Veterans Count and other organizations across the state provide support. Additionally, the Radio Thon will include testimonials from clients, sponsor recognition, celebrity endorsements and check presentations. The Radio Thon, hosted by the host of NH Today Jack Heath, will be broadcast live on Manchester’s WGIR-AM 610 and Rochester’s News Radio 96-7. Listeners not in the coverage area for these two stations will be able to access the broadcast online at iHeartRadio.com, or through the iHeartRadio app.
This major effort will directly impact the lives of service members of all eras and their families. Since 2006, Easterseals Military & Veterans Services provided more than 9,600 individuals with services for challenges including suicide prevention, employment, homelessness, substance abuse treatment, transportation, and mental health issues resulting from post-traumatic stress disorder and/or traumatic brain injury. Additionally, Veterans Count provides emergency financial assistance for food, home maintenance, utilities, housing, rent, fuel assistance, vehicle repair, child care, gasoline, and medical bills.
