Ca$h Coalition presents $mart with Money Week

Kishwaukee Untied Way and the DeKalb County Ca$h Coalition will host a series of financial literacy events in DeKalb and Sycamore in the first $mart with Money Week, scheduled from Saturday through May 23.

Presentation topics include identity theft, budgeting, credit management, eating healthy on a budget, couponing, estate planning and others. A community shred day also is planned.

“We are excited to offer these resources to individuals in DeKalb County. It is essential that community members have the ability to make informed and responsible decisions regarding finance, credit and debt,” Kishwaukee United Way Executive Director Dawn Littlefield said in a news release. “Kishwaukee United Way is pleased to work with other community partners to coordinate these program sessions which provide tools and resources to impact lives in our area.”

The Ca$h Coalition partnered with local experts to provide the week’s sessions. Frank Turza and Ryan Gifford from The National Bank & Trust Co. will speak to home buying and credit management, attorney Chuck Rose will discuss estate planning and financial planner Wendy West-Crouch will share investing principles. Other workshops focus on healthy eating on a budget, coupon clipping with the pros, community gardening and the way community members can be “smart with money.”

All sessions are free of charge, and open to all. A complete schedule can be found on the Kishwaukee United Way Facebook page. Call 815-756-7522 or email info@kishwaukeeunitedway.com for more information.
