COLUMBUS, Ohio (April 1, 2022) - Telhio Credit Union will be celebrating Credit Union Youth Month during the month of April with a special savings match program for youth accounts.
The theme of this year's program at Telhio is "Saving for a Big Dream." The purpose of this coordinated effort is to teach children the value of savings and why having a savings account is important.
"Finding ways to support our community is a priority at Telhio. Credit
Union Youth Month is a perfect program for us to help teach children and their
parents the importance of savings," Leslie Bumgarner, CEO of Telhio Credit
Union. "This is another way that we demonstrate to our members that they are
our priority, not our profits."
There will be several components to the program for children, who can visit a local Telhio branch to participate. Each branch will have fun, engaging activities and giveaways that underscore the importance of saving. Parents and children are also encouraged to open a youth savings account during the month of April. Visit a branch in April and Telhio will match the child's deposit up to $25. Little Dreamers (11 and under) who enroll in Telhio's Money Mammals Kids Club will also receive a free gift while supplies last. More information about Telhio's Money Mammals Kids Club is available at https://www.telhio.org/education/money-mammals-kids-club.
