Marshall Community Credit Union Celebrates National Credit Union Youth Month
Children, with their fertile imaginations, are particularly good at dreaming. But to make a dream come true, you need to have clear goals and, very likely, save some money to make them happen. Credit unions can help their members on both counts.
Marshall Community Credit Union is celebrating National Credit Union Youth Month, a program that helps teach and encourage kids to develop good financial habits. The theme this year is “The Future is Yours: Picture it! Save for it! Share it!” MCCU is encouraging all members, particularly those age 5-17, to write down their dreams, create vision boards, and encourage each other.
These activities can help lay the groundwork for their future success. Young members who begin a habit of envisioning and recording their goals are more likely to achieve future goals as adults. And MCCU hopes this year’s National Credit Union Youth Month will give young members the encouragement they need to start this habit.
To help youth members start (or continue) their savings, the credit union is giving away some picture-inspired giveaways, including two Instax Mini Instant Cameras (for members age 5-10), two selfie sticks (for members age 11-13) and two sports action cameras (for members age 14-17).
Youth members will be automatically entered to win each time they make a deposit into their MCCU savings account, April 1-30, 2019. In addition, one grand prize winner will be named a Millionaire for a Day, where they will win a $1 million deposit, along with limo service from school to the restaurant of their choice for dinner.
Youth members are also encouraged to go to either MCCU location and enter for a chance to win one of two Battle Creek Bombers VIP Experiences, as well as participate in the online photo contest.Go to main navigation
