Since the pandemic began, one of the ways the Coalition has been able to expand our outreach is through the generosity of our community allies and the power of radio.
Kristina McNamara, a 25 year old sales and marketing assistant at iHeartMedia NH, was compelled to reach out after she read an article about the impact of the pandemic on survivors of abuse.
"These causes are close to my heart, and after reading about a rise in abuse worldwide during the coronavirus crisis, I felt the desire to help on a local level. With the help of my team and managers, iHeartMedia produced a PSA message raising awareness for the 24/7 Coalition helpline to run across our seven NH stations, including on Greg and the Morning Buzz! I’m grateful to work for a company with a platform to raise awareness on such a large scale. I believe change happens in our backyards, and no act of kindness is too small. Now more than ever, we need to step up for our fellow humans and show them we care."
And this October to highlight Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Manchester Radio Group and Bellwether Community Credit Union will generously be running multiple PSAs and banner ads on five different popular radio stations to raise awareness, help galvanize support for survivors, and encourage the public to take action to help end abuse in their communities.
Marga Bessette of MRG Station WZID recently interviewed the Coalition's Executive Director Lyn Schollett on the morning show Eye on NH. You can hear that interview here:
Our thanks to people like Kristina and Marga, and iHeartMedia NH, Manchester Radio Group and Bellwether Community Credit Union for their generosity and partnership.
