4 spooktacular ideas for credit unions this Halloween

With Halloween just around the corner, many credit unions are getting ready to celebrate the holiday in fun and innovative ways. We have gathered a few examples of how credit unions can get into the Halloween spirit this year, while benefiting members and their communities.

Royal Credit Union in Eau Claire, Wisconsin encourages their community to get physically and fiscally fit this Halloween season. Rather than promoting sugary candies, Royal CU hosts a “Spook Night” for their community. Families can come and play games, enjoy the haunted tunnel, have their face painted, dance to DJ entertainment, watch Halloween movies, bounce on inflatables, and much more. This event is only $5 for entrance and is great exposure for the credit union in the Eau Claire community!

North Star Community Credit Union in North Dakota hosts a “Spook-N-Save” event at some of their branches. Just as the credit union has collected and distributed backpacks for a community backpack exchange, they have been accepting gently used Halloween costumes over the last year. The event is open to the community on a “first come first serve” basis, and people do not need to donate a costume in order to take part. This is a great way to give back to the community and help identify the credit union as a trusted and caring financial partner.
