ROCHESTER, N.H.--After a dire plea of help for donations from the Homeless Center for Strafford County, Northeast Credit Union (NECU) and Holy Rosary Credit Union (HRCU) are collaborating to restock depleted food supplies and provide gifts for families in need this holiday season.
In a joint donation, both credit unions donated $1,000 each, and delivered food, gifts and other in-kind donations to the Shelter.
The Homeless Center for Strafford County (HCSC) is a seasonal emergency shelter for children and families located in Rochester, N.H.
“Northeast Credit Union and Holy Rosary Credit Union share the same social philosophy – and that’s people helping people,” said Timothy J. Collia, NECU President & CEO.
“We talked with our friends at Northeast Credit Union, and without hesitation we both knew that by collaborating together, the shelter would receive double the financial and in-kind support that they desperately need,” said Brian Hughes, HRCU President & CEO.
