Portsmouth, NH – Northeast Credit Union (NECU) is pleased to announce that they raised $2,000 for Safe Harbor Recovery Center, with the help of the community through a social media campaign. Safe Harbor Recovery Center is a community resource which is open to all concerned with alcohol and drug addiction. It exists to foster recovery and empower individuals, families and the greater Seacoast region of New Hampshire. With the support of the credit union's members and the community, the social media campaign, driven through Twitter, looked to raise awareness of the Heroin epidemic facing our state. The idea was for every re-tweet Northeast Credit Union got, they would donate $0.50 to Safe Harbor;

"We are proud to help support Safe Harbor Recovery Center. Through this social media campaign the credit union was able to raise community awareness for peer based recovery support systems in New Hampshire." said Andrea Pruna, VP of Marketing at Northeast Credit Union. "The opioid epidemic is affecting all of our communities and we are pleased to support the peer-led recovery efforts of Safe Harbor Recovery Center."

"On behalf of Safe Harbor Recovery Center volunteers and leaders, I want to thank Northeast Credit Union for hosting this campaign," said Sandi Coyle, the main visionary for Safe Harbor Recovery Center. "This is exactly the kind of community support that works two-fold; it helps to raise much needed funding for recovery programs within the Center, and inspires community awareness. We're working to meet our total fundraising goal of $360,000, of which we have raised close to $100,000. We are set to open the doors by early May and look forward to welcoming everyone to our Open House event. A heartfelt thanks to Northeast Credit Union and all the tweeters."
