MANCHESTER, NH. (October 27, 2016): In honor of Veteran’s Day, EPE Corporation, a Service-Disabled, Veteran-Owned, Small Business (SDVOSB) Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) company, makes a difference in the lives of local veterans by providing a donation to Veterans Count of NH.
EPE conducted a company-wide 50/50 raffle with half of the proceeds and a free vacation day awarded to the raffle winner. The remaining half of the proceeds (plus a matching donation from EPE) was donated to Veterans Count. The raffle winner was Cindy Dwyer, a 30 year employee of EPE.
“EPE has supported Veterans Count for a few years now, but we wanted to do something different this year in honor of Veteran’s Day,” comments James “JD” Bell, Jr., President and CEO of EPE Corporation. “This raffle was a way to financially support Veteran’s Count, spread the word about how Veterans Count assists our local veterans, as well as offer a fun program for our employees,” he adds.
Joe Emmons, Senior Director of Development at Veterans Count, added “We are appreciative of EPE’s donation and are pleased that more people will know about Veterans Count and what we do. It’s great when a small local company like EPE Corporation offers support of programs such as ours.”
