Lights, Camera, Ready, Action! LCU Celebrates Financial Literacy Month!
LEOMINSTER, MA (April 20, 2023) — Leominster Credit Union proudly kicked off Financial Literacy month by presenting a check for $3,000 to Fitchburg High School to award three $1,000 student scholarships. Throughout Financial Literacy Month, LCU is celebrating by offering free educational resources to its members and the community. The credit union recognizes the importance of financial education and is committed to helping its members make informed decisions about their finances and giving back to our communities.
During the month of April, Leominster Credit Union will be offering free financial education resources, including webinars, and workshops. These resources cover a variety of topics, including budgeting, saving, credit scores, and home buying. Leominster Credit Union continues to be one the leaders in the industry with their focus on finding unique ways to engage with all demographics to help build financial knowledge and know-how within the communities they serve.
Most recently LCU has engaged with Leominster Access TV to create their own, “Make ₵ents” program based on current relevant financial topics. Additionally, LCU has expanded their programing and outreach in an effort to be more accessible to their entire footprint by partnering with organizations such as, the Polus Center, Veterans Outreach, Spanish American Center and Perkins School. As well as their partnership with various high schools and local colleges in the community which has resulted in successful co-op programs and internship opportunities for students.
“We believe that financial literacy is a key component of overall financial wellness,” said Brittany Haley, AVP/Financial Education Manager. “By providing free educational resources, we hope to empower our members and the community to make informed decisions about their finances and achieve their financial goals.”
