Last month at the Family Promise Day Center, Independent Financial hosted "Decision Tree", a very engaging financial class geared for children. Bank representatives Larsha' and Berlynn offered hypothetical choices about spending money versus saving it. Many of the children had strong opinions about which they would do! Each participant received a piggy bank for future savings!
The following week, a financial literacy class for adults was hosted at the Day Center. BancorpSouth representatives Matt and Jared brought wonderful budgeting materials as well as snacks. We are so grateful for these partnerships!
On Tuesday, June 21, BancorpSouth-Cadence will host a class on budgeting and avoiding harmful pitfalls that can impact credit negatively. We are hoping Matt and Jared will return, as they did a great job teaching! The class will be from 6:30-7:30 PM at the Family Promise Day Center (901 E. Houston Street in Sherman).
Other financial classes sponsored by BancorpSouth will be held Thursday, July 28 and Thursday, October 6. These will be collaborative efforts by Family Promise, Habitat for Humanity, United Way, and Callie Clinic. Mark your calendar and watch for additional information!
Classes are open to all who are interested. Snacks, child care and door prizes are provided. Please let us know if you can attend, so we can plan accordingly.
Note: Child care assistants are needed during the classes. If you are a trained Family Promise Volunteer and would like to help out on any of these dates, please let Leigh know (903-271-1088).
