Be Financially Strong at Marshall Community Credit Union
Financial literacy is a crucial life skill for young people, but it’s one that too few are learning. That’s why in April, Marshall Community Credit Union (MCCU) is focusing on helping youth become more financially fit. For the entire month, MCCU will be hosting events to help local youth strengthen their money skills and pump up their savings.
The theme of the month-long event is Credit Union Strong, so stop by and get in on the action at MCCU. All month long, youth members who make a deposit into their MCCU savings or CU In School account receive automatic entry into some awesome drawings, including the Super Saver Challenge where two lucky winners will receive $25 each and the Millionaire for a Day contest where one grand prize winner will win a $1,000,000 deposit along with limo service from school to the restaurant of their choice for dinner. And finally, deposits made into a youth account during the month of April will earn entries for National Youth Savings Challenge, a nationwide savings challenge sponsored by GreenPath Financial Wellness where 25 credit union members will be awarded a $100 cash prize.
