April is National Credit Union Youth Month, and we’re getting a jump start with our piggy bank-building workshop designed to help boost healthy spending and saving habits for our youth—with a good dose of arts and crafts thrown in there, too.
Join us from 1 to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 24, at the Children’s Museum of La Crosse for our free Smart Savers—Build Your Own Piggy Bank workshop. The workshop is designed to introduce your little ones (ages 5 to 11) to healthy spending and saving. Plus, your kids will walk away with their own, one-of-a-kind piggy bank that they’ll be eager to fill.
Bring in a container (a jar, coffee can, soda bottle, sturdy box, etc.) and your creativity, and we’ll supply the decorations (and fun). Need a little inspiration? Check out our piggy banks board on Pinterest.
It’s Verve’s goal—in line with our guiding seven Cooperative Principles—to provide education, training and information to help create a thriving financial future for our community. What better way to teach kids about spending, saving and sharing than a glue sticks and glitter, piggy-bank-decorating good time!
We’ll add a little bacon to your Verve piggy bank.
If new savers open a Kids’ Account, we’ll match their first $5 deposit. Just think of Verve as a really big piggy bank—except we’ll drop in some cash, too! Offer applies to new members age 17 and under. All youth accounts need a parent or guardian to join. Membership qualification and eligibility requirements apply.
