Redwood Credit Union Celebrates Credit Union Youth Month

Redwood Credit Union (RCU) will celebrate Credit Union Youth Month in April with giveaways and two contests that promote good savings habits in children and teenagers.

Jr. Rangers (age 12 and under) are invited to participate in a coloring contest that features a flock of cartoon owls who encourage kids to “Give a Hoot About Saving.” One winner from each branch will receive $100.

Jr. Partners (RCU members ages 13-17) are invited to share what they are saving for or a savings goal they’ve achieved with an essay, song, photo, poem, or other artistic medium of their choice. One winner from each branch will be selected based on their saving principles and receive $100.

In addition, youth who open a new RCU savings account or deposit $100 into an existing savings account during April will receive:

  • Color-changing cup and straw, and Reddy coloring book (Jr. Rangers)
  • RCU key lanyard with savings plan printed on the back (Jr. Partners)

“RCU is committed to promoting financial wellness and encouraging members to have good saving habits at every age,” said Andy Ramos, senior vice president of member experience.

Jr. Rangers and Jr. Partners make up RCU’s youth account program. Both groups receive dividends on the funds they save (on balances of $10 or more), a quarterly newsletter, online banking, and access to an educational website with games and articles.

Credit Union Youth Month contest rules and a downloadable coloring sheet will be available beginning April 1 at redwoodcu.org/youth. Submissions for both contests will be accepted at any of RCU’s 17 branches.
