Every child dreams about their future. Many of those dreams will require money to come true. How does one help the children in their life achieve such dreams? One way is to help them learn "The Science of Saving."
April is youth month at Greater Niagara FCU, and staffers are celebrating "The Science of Saving." All year, current youth credit union members and new youth members are encouraged to develop good financial habits and start saving early. But every member under the age of 18 who makes a deposit during the month of April will receive gifts and the opportunity to win prizes.
Two science-themed prizes will be awarded to children ages birth to 12 years. Three lucky 13- to 17-year-old members who come in and make deposits in April will win prizes including a Kindle Fire and gift certificates to Buffalo Battleground.
Multiple deposits during the month will give the member more opportunities to win. All youth deposits made during youth month will also have the opportunity to participate in the National Youth Saving Challenge.
Greater Niagara FCU has been a "Champion for Children" with the Child Advocacy Center of Niagara (www.CACofNiagara.org) for over 20 years, as staffers help Niagara County children who have been abused or are at risk for trafficking. In a continued effort to help the CAC of Niagara, staffers are collecting comfort items at both locations (2901 Military Road, Niagara Falls; and 160 Ward Road, North Tonawanda) during the month of April. Readers can drop off new stuffed toys to a Greater Niagara FCU branch before April 30 and #BandAgainstChildAbuse. The CAC of Niagara needs more than 300 stuffed animals every year.
To learn more, stop in to one a branch or visit www.GreaterNiagaraFCU.com.
