Service Credit Union was the presenting sponsor of the second annual Salute Our Soldiers event organized by Veterans Count and hosted in Nashua. More than 360 people gathered to raise funds for soldiers and their families who are deployed or returning home from service.
“Service Credit Union is proud to sponsor this patriotic event to help Veterans and their families,” says Gordon Simmons, president/CEO of Service Credit Union. “It is our responsibility to assist the people who served our great country and are in need of assistance. It follows the credit union philosophy of people helping people.”
Nearly $200,000 was raised at the event at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Nashua. The funds will be used to help veterans and their families with employment, housing, and medical needs. Money raised from the dinner will help to fund care coordinators who help New Hampshire military members, veterans, and their families who are in need of short-term, emergency help or services.
