Salute Our Soldiers (S.O.S.) is a major fundraising event for the Nashua Chapter of Veterans Count, and honors past and current service men and women. Veteran’s Count, a program of Easter Seals, provides critical and timely financial assistance and services to veterans, service members and their families.

“We are thrilled to sponsor the S.O.S. dinner,” said Philip Emma, President of Merrimack County Savings Bank. “The Nashua Chapter of Veterans Count has been exceptional at organizing highly-attended events that celebrate and salute the special men and women who have risked their lives for our country. It’s truly an honor to support such a fantastic organization.”

“We are grateful to Merrimack County Savings Bank and their generous support of Veterans Count over the years,” said Joe Emmons, Director of Development for Veterans Count. “Their support helps us provide our veterans with much-needed services that have oftentimes been lifesaving, family saving and home saving.”

Veterans Count was developed in partnership with Easter Seals NH, the NH National Guard and the NH Department of Health and Human Services to provide critical and timely financial assistance and services to veterans, service members and their families. More than 9,300 individuals have been benefited from Veterans Count since it was founded in 2006.
