Merrimack Valley drivers surprised by gas giveaway

HAVERHILL - Facebook fans of Merrimack Valley Credit Union were the first to know that Haffner’s Gas Station at 73 Plaistow Road was the place to be yesterday morning.

The Credit Union paid for gas for 265 drivers who stopped to fill up. Staff from the Credit Union, including the CEO, pumped gas for two hours during the morning commute. The bank spent about $13,000 for the fill ups, according to a spokesperson.

“Social media has made special events fun to host and promote,” said Merrimack Valley Credit Union CEO Peter J. Matthews, Jr. “It feels good to reward our Facebook followers for their loyalty.”

Like this one, all future free gas events will be announced on Facebook in advance. “Like” the Merrimack Valley Credit Union page so you don’t miss them.
