4th Annual Jeepin' 4 Vets Benefits New Hampshire's Veterans and Their Families

On Sunday, July 25, nearly 100 participants are expected at the 4th Annual Jeepin' 4 Vets with proceeds to benefit Veterans Count.

The philanthropic arm of Easterseals Military and Veterans Services, Veterans Count provides critical, timely financial assistance and services to New Hampshire's service members, veterans, and their families to ensure their dignity, health, and overall well-being.

The convoy will begin at the Pease International Tradeport in Portsmouth at 10 am and travel to Harley Jacks in Ossipee, where there will be food, music, raffles, and a Jeep scavenger hunt.

"This event provides a unique experience to unite Jeep owners while supporting our military families," said Tim Carnes, Owner, Harley Jacks Burgers & Brews. "We are extremely proud to host this year's participants."

Events such as Jeepin' 4 Vets provide necessary funds for rent assistance, gas, emergency food, transportation, and tools or training to secure employment. Last year alone, Easterseals NH Military & Veterans Services served more than 1,660 veterans, assisting them in accessing eligible benefits and services and obtaining employment and housing to build a sustainable, secure, and viable future.

Participants are getting into the spirit of the event early this year through the Duck Duck Jeep phenomenon. This is the act of "Ducking" or placing a rubber duck on someone's Jeep. This means the owner got "Ducked" and has to continue by planting another rubber duck on someone else's Jeep. Duck Duck Jeeps mission is to help make this a seamless experience to help spread the Jeep love. Ducks for this event are military themed.
