Deepwater FCU Helps Kids ‘Give a Hoot About Savings’ During Credit Union Youth Month

DEEPWATER, N.J. – Deepwater FCU celebrated both Credit Union Youth Month and Financial Literacy Month in April. This year’s theme was “Give a Hoot About Savings,” chosen by credit union staff nationwide. The credit union gave kids an owl to color and then placed it on the tree branches of a display. The credit union also gave out owl bags to the kids who opened up a Kids Club account with a few goodies inside.

April means spring, a time of optimism, and credit unions took this time to inspire their members to begin their path toward financial freedom by marking three key celebrations: Credit Union Youth Month, National Youth Saving Challenge, and Financial Literacy Month.
