Bay Federal Credit Union Invites Kids to Learn About Saving Money during Youth Week

In Honor of National Financial Literacy Month, Contests and Coloring in All Branches April 24-29

Capitola, CA – April 20, 2017 – Bay Federal Credit Union welcomes children, teens, and their parents to learn about saving money during Youth Week. In honor of National Financial Literacy Month, all Bay Federal branches will participate in a six-day celebration of financial literacy from April 24-29.

Children and teens, whether they are members of Bay Federal or not, are invited to enter to win cash prizes, participate in coloring contests, and pick up free financial education material designed for both kids and adults. This year’s Youth Week theme, “Give a Hoot About Saving,” is designed around wise owls, acknowledging that there are many different kinds of savers and highlighting the wisdom of saving money.

“The future financial health of our community really starts with our children,” said Carrie Birkhofer, President and CEO of Bay Federal. “Helping local parents and educators instill good saving values in the youth of today is one of the most intrinsic ways we can make a real difference.”

National Financial Literacy Month was developed by the National Endowment for Financial Education, which promotes financial education among all ages, and was first recognized by the Senate in 2004.
