Financial Center First CU opens Education Center at Greenwood branch

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (October 23, 2018) — Financial Center First Credit Unioncelebrated the grand opening of its Education Center at its Greenwood branch at the corner of Main and South Emerson this past Saturday, October 20. The space contains a community education and training room that seats 20-30, a financial library, online financial literacy computer stations, and a coffee bar. It was designed to welcome Financial Center’s members and the Greenwood community to come and learn.
