Financial Wellness Day
On Wednesday, September 20th, NSB joined over 20 community partners at the 2nd annual Financial Wellness Day presented by Champlain Valley Office of Economic Opportunity (CVOEO). Vermont Student Assistance Corporation in Winooski provided a great location for this year's event. Participants were able to gather valuable information on many topics including saving for college, financial education and goal setting, job training programs, opening a small business, buying a car or home, avoiding fraud scams, and paying taxes. Community Ambassadors were on hand to translate information for the many New Americans who stopped by.
Thanks to a grant from the NSB Foundation, CVOEO was able to provide onsite credit report reviews and credit score information to participants.
Kids enjoyed face painting, crafts, BINGO, a visit from CHAMP, a bounce house, storytelling and free books. Everyone loved the free ice cream sundae bar, with VT Attorney General T.J. Donovan and his staff servings as celebrity scoopers.
We look forward to next year's event!
