Warren Federal Credit Union Do-Gooders Unite Video

In Video Production on July 31, 2014 at 10:23 am


Laramie, Wyoming, is a great place to live and work, and Warren Federal Credit Union is looking for people who want to help make it even better. Warren is seeking 200 new members to pledge to “Do-Good” by opening a checking account at their Laramie Branch. The new members will receive $100 to help spread good in the community and once Warren reaches their new member goal they will donate $10,000 towards the beautification of Downtown Laramie.

Message was invited to collaborate on a video to help launch the campaign. The video showcases members of the Warren team and their unique culture of service. Warren Federal Credit Union knows that the key to their success is their member’s success. Whether it’s buying a home, starting a business, planning a family’s financial future, or supporting community projects, they are committed to helping their members reach their financial goals. They are also dedicated to helping make their communities a better place to live and work. As you can see from the video, the only requirement to reach these goals is that they have a little fun along the way.
