Redwood Credit Union Encourages Young Savers to “Unleash the Power of Saving” Throughout April

Redwood Credit Union is celebrating Credit Union Youth Month in April, along with credit unions across the United States.

Initiated by the Credit Union National Association to encourage kids to spend and save wisely, this year’s theme is “Unleash the Power of Saving at Your Credit Union™.”

To help celebrate the month, RCU is making the first deposit of $10 for its Jr. Ranger Members (ages 12 and under) and $20 for its Jr. Partner Members (ages 13-17).*

For young people who may have heard about recent troubles in the banking industry, it’s especially important now to share that credit unions are safe and sound local financial institutions, owned and run by trusted people living in their own communities.

Supporting children toward living financially healthy lives is a gift that helps prepare them for a future where they can achieve their goals and dreams. One of the ways the credit union educates is through its M3 Money Club for the youngest Members and Elements of Money for those 12 and older.
