Commitment to Our Local Communities & Organizations

RTN is proud to support organizations in our local communities throughout the year, and especially when there is an emergency. Our primary focus is to support non-profits, events and activities in the local communities where RTN branches are located. The Credit Union is particularly active during the holiday season to help make sure those in need enjoy the joys of the season.

Community involvement is a core value of RTN as a credit union. RTN supports local community projects and initiatives, and works collaboratively with members, sponsor groups and surrounding communities through financial support and volunteer participation.

Member Appreciation Day

RTN hosts an annual Member Appreciation Day at RTN community branches in Amesbury, Brookline, Danvers, Dorchester, Marlborough, Tewksbury, Waltham and Worcester.  The event features refreshments, giveaways, activities for kids, photos with seasonal winter scenes and a visit from Santa at select locations. The event is free for all who visit our branches.

Coat Drives

RTN Employees Community Outreach collects coats of all sizes for those in need during the winter season.

Food Drives for Families in Need

RTN Employees Community Outreach is a participant in the food drives to benefit food banks in communities served by RTN.

Holiday Strolls

RTN takes part in the annual Dorchester Lower Mills Holiday Stroll co-sponsored by the Lower Mills Merchants Association and The Lower Mills Civic Organization and the Hudson Holiday Stroll.  Members enjoy refreshments, music, kids’ activities and a special visit from Santa.
