Join DCU on a Boston 25 News Zip Trip!

Help us recognize the local DCU Hometown Hero making a difference.

Are You Ready to Zip Trip with Boston 25 News & DCU?

Each Friday throughout the summer starting June 21, DCU will be zip-tripping to towns and cities across Massachusetts as the exclusive financial sponsor for the popular Boston 25 Zip Trip series. Join us and be a part of the live audience as Boston 25 broadcasts from 6am to 10am. Stop by the DCU tent, say hi, find out "What DCU Can Save You" and be on-hand as the DCU Hometown Hero is presented to a local resident for their courage, outstanding achievements, and contributions to make his or her community a better place to live.

Boston 25 News anchors Gene Lavanchy, Sara Underwood, Elizabeth (Lilly) Hopkins, Daniel Miller, Meteorologist Shiri Spear, Boston 25 Sports Anchor Tom Leyden, and Boston 25 Around Town Host Michele Lazcano will be broadcasting LIVE in towns and cities each week highlighting what's unique and special about each of the ten zip codes we'll be traveling to.

Neighbors, residents, and kids of all ages who want to share their "Hometown Pride" are encouraged to be part of their live audience! The live broadcasts give attendees the chance to show off why they think their town is a great place to live. Explore historic towns and cities with us, meet the people, and enjoy specialty food demonstrations.

The popular “Taste of the Town” segment will be returning this year along with other favorite segments. The Zip Trips are becoming even more child-friendly this summer with the addition of a family play area.
