Michigan Community CU Launches Zombie-Themed Community Events
JACKSON, MICH. (10/25/13)--Michigan Community CU has adopted a zombie theme for Halloween--using it for everything from charitable fundraising to promotion glow-rate auto loans--all as a way to give back to the community.
 
"We take pride in giving back to our community," said Tina Hamilton, Michigan Community CU interim CEO. "It is rewarding to see our members and staff really having fun with this promotion, and we are very excited to be participating in these community events."
 
The credit union donated $500 sponsorship to Zombie Walk Jackson, a 5k event in which all proceeds go to the March of Dimes. The walk was held on Oct. 12, with Michigan Community CU employees and volunteers participating. The March of Dimes supports research aimed at preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
 
The credit union is also offering a Zombie Auto Loan Promotion, which includes a rate as low as 2.00% annual percentage rate up to 72 months, and no payments for 90 days.
 
Michigan Community CU "zombies" also appeared at a local gas station on Oct. 18 to pump free gas. The first 25 cars receive $20 in free gas to promote the Zombie Auto Loan Promotion.
