What Can DCU Save You?

Join DCU on a BOSTON25 News Zip Trip!

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

Are You Ready to Zip Trip with BOSTON25 News & DCU?

Each Friday throughout the summer, DCU will be zip-tripping to towns and cities across Massachusetts as the exclusive financial sponsor for the popular BOSTON25 Zip Trip series. Join us and be a part of the live audience as BOSTON25 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.

BOSTON25 Morning News Anchors Gene Lavanchy, Sara Underwood, Daniel Miller, Julie Grauert, Meteorologist Shiri Spear, Elizabeth (Lilly) Hopkins, and BOSTON25's “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. Furthermore, sponsors will be giving out free accessories to ensure that no one leaves empty-handed.

The popular “Taste of the Town” segment will being returning this year along with other favorite segments. The Zip Trips are becoming ever more child-friendly this summer with the addition of a family play area, and a kids’ fun run.
