TLC Community Credit Union saw more than 700 students participate in this year’s youth financial literacy initiative, with more than 50% reaching their savings goal. The students saved an impressive total of $34,000.

TLC CCU completed the 2015-16 school year with an $8,000 increase over last year’s deposits. TLC CCU currently has sixteen student-run credit union branches located in Lenawee County.
