Seattle-based Credit Union Wants to Help Kids See the Future

Seattle-based Credit Union Wants to Help Kids See the Future

Inspirus Credit Union invites students, families, teachers, and community members to celebrate National Credit Union Youth Month.

PR Newswire

SEATTLE, April 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- A 2017 national survey found that almost 60% of Americans have less than $1,000 in savings, and almost 40% had none. If it's so difficult for adults, imagine how challenging it is for children to learn how to save.

Friends, families, students, and community members are welcome to a day of fun, games, and learning about saving money at Inspirus Credit Union (pronounced inspire us) on Sat. Apr. 21. 2018.

Studies show that when habits are formed at a young age, they tend to stick. If children learn how to save at a young age, it will be easier for them to have good savings habits in the future.

Inspirus Credit Union wants to help kids see the future. Join us at the Science of Savings event where kids can imaging a future where piggy banks fly and giant automatic savings robots visit credit unions. Children will learn how to save for the future through coloring books and educational games.

"We're educating kids so they can start saving now," said Vice President of Branch Operations Patsy Gayda. "Children will have fun playing games and taking home prizes while learning about money and finances at our event."
