PORTSMOUTH — Veterans Count, a program of Easterseals NH, was the recipient of $23,500 raised by the third annual Guyton Group Charitable Foundation golf tournament on June 10.
“We chose Veterans Count because of their resources and ability to assist a veteran or a military family on the spot through their care coordinators. It is our way of giving back to support those who have sacrificed so much to serve and protect our nation,” said Andrew Guyton of the Guyton Group.
For more than 12 years, Veterans Count has provided financial assistance and services to service members, veterans and their families to support their dignity, health and overall well-being.
As the philanthropic arm of Easterseals’ Military & Veterans Services, services have been provided to more than 14,000 individuals for challenges including suicide risk, unemployment, homelessness, substance use disorders, legal concerns and mental health issues.
In addition, MVS has provided emergency financial assistance for food, utilities, housing, transportation, fuel and vehicle repair.
The Guyton Group is a preeminent strategic advisory firm on the Seacoast. For more than 30 years, The Guyton Group has been serving business owners, senior executives and individuals in the greater New England area.
Easterseals NH also recently received a generous gift of $300,000 from the Eva Montembeault Trust, which honors the philanthropic lives of Eva and Gerald “Monty” Montembeault.
That gift will be used to support people of all ages with disabilities and special needs who receive Easterseals services throughout the Granite State, including service members and veterans.
