Portsmouth, NH –Northeast Credit Union (NECU) believes at the heart of every community are good people doing good things. NECU has partnered with the New Hampshire Fisher Cats and the Portland Sea Dogs to create “Nice Catch - Celebrating Kind Kids” initiative to recognize and celebrate New Hampshire and Maine kids who consistently demonstrate compassion, empathy and kindness toward their peers, teachers, coaches, family and other community members and who go above and beyond to make our communities a kinder and brighter place.
“Northeast Credit Union is committed to supporting and celebrating the people who are making a positive difference in the lives of others. It’s more important than ever to shine the light on the kind and caring young people in our communities who inspire us all to be and do better,” said Northeast Credit Union President and CEO Timothy J. Collia. “We hope that by recognizing these kids and making a positive example of them, it will encourage others to join in and reinforce the idea that each one of us, no matter our age, can truly make a difference.”
The Nice Catch Initiative kicks off this month and encourages teachers, coaches, youth leaders, community members and families to make nominations of children 17 and younger who consistently exhibit acts of kindness, empathy, and overall helpfulness to make their communities a better and brighter place. Submissions can be made online between April 1 and June 15, 2018, at necu.org/nicecatch.
Twelve Grand Prize Winners will be selected throughout May and June from the nominations received. Winners will experience a special game day celebration at either a New Hampshire Fisher Cats or Portland Sea Dogs home game with 9 tickets to bring family and friends. Each kind kid will have a special shout-out, be featured on the game-day signage, throw out a ceremonial pitch, and be awarded a Northeast Credit Union swag bag of goodies.
