MCCU Celebrates Money Smart Week 2018
Almost everyone could use a little help when it comes to managing finances. Money doesn’t come with instructions, and that’s why banks, businesses, schools, libraries and many others are joining together to help support financial education during Money Smart Week, April 21–28.
Hundreds of free classes will be offered throughout the country for all ages and walks of life during Money Smart Week. Learn about credit, the home-buying process, estate planning, how to avoid being a victim of identity theft and much more.
Marshall Community Credit Union (MCCU) is hosting a variety of kid’s events during Money Smart Week, including the following:
- Tues., April 24 at 10:30 a.m. at the Marshall District Library: preschool age kids and younger are invited for a reading of Lots and Lots of Coins by Margarette S. Reid. Participants will learn some interesting facts about coins and participate in a coin treasure hunt.
- Thurs., April 26 at 6:30 p.m. at the Tekonsha Township Library: kids from kindergarten through fourth grade will hear a story, learn about different coins and participate in a fun activity.
In addition, MCCU is offering free shred days all week long. If you have personal papers that need to be shredded, you can stop by either MCCU location throughout Money Smart Week and put them in their locked document shred bins. While you’re there, sign up for a chance to win one of two 12-sheet cross cut paper shredders!
Money Smart Week is a public awareness campaign to promote financial education across all age groups. Launched in 2002 by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, the program is now active in more than 45 states through national partnerships with the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the United States Department of Agriculture Cooperative Extension and the American Library Association.Go to main navigation
