Financial Reality Fair Brought to Veteran's Memorial Intermediate School, 250 Students Reached

VINELAND, N.J. – Campbell EFCU, Members 1st FCU, Thunderbolt Area FCU and Bay Atlantic FCU hosted a financial Reality Fair at Veteran’s Memorial Intermediate School on Friday, reaching 250 students. This is the first Reality Fair hosted at the school.

The event allowed students to choose a career, receive a salary and pretend to go through life, stopping by booths to purchase cars, rent homes, finance furniture with the goal of making good, financial choices that left them with some money in their pockets.

Volunteers from the sponsoring credit unions as well as Credit Union of New Jersey, Jersey Shore FCU, the New Jersey Credit Union League, and faculty members from the school manned the booths set-up in the school’s gymnasium.
