--Philadelphia Federal Credit Union to provide credit tips during King Day of Service --
Philadelphia, PA, January 11, 2018 - On Monday, January 15,
Philadelphia Federal Credit Union
(PFCU) will host a free financial education workshop entitled "Credit Doesn't Have to be Confusing" from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Elementary School at Girard College, located at 2101 S. College Ave. in Philadelphia.
The workshop, which is open to the public, is part of PFCU's participation in the 23rd annual Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, the largest King Day of Service event in the nation. During the workshop, PFCU's Accredited Financial Counselor Erin Ellis will teach attendees how credit works, how to manage their finances and the different factors that can affect credit. Attendees will also learn how to build and reestablish credit and obtain and analyze a credit report.
As part of her role at PFCU, Ellis visits Philadelphia-area community organizations throughout the year to provide financial seminars, empowering people to take control of their personal finances and achieve independence.
"My day-to-day job is to go out into the community to teach people around the city about how to manage their money so they can reach their goals. The King Day of Service is a great way to get in front of people who may be interested in learning about credit but who haven't had an opportunity to do so," said Ellis.
PFCU is a member-owned institution that invests profits back into the community. To learn more about PFCU's mission, services and upcoming events, visit
