COMMUNITY RESOURCE FEDERAL CREDIT UNION TAKES PART IN MILITARY SAVES MONTH : Promoting automatic savings to help service members and their families reach their savings goals



(LATHAM, March 30, 2021) – As part of Military Saves Month 2021, scheduled for April 1 - 30, 2021 Community Resource FCU (CRFCU) is spreading the message of saving successfully and urging its network to encourage the military community to save money, reduce debt, and build wealth.
This free, virtual event will center around weekly themes of saving automatically, saving for the unexpected, saving to retire, saving by reducing debt, and saving as a family. Military Saves, an initiative of America Saves and the Consumer Federation of America, is the nonprofit organization behind Military Saves Month.
"The work of Military Saves is to encourage the entire military community, including military families and veterans, to save, as we believe that financial readiness is mission readiness,” says Angela Caban, Director of Military Saves.
“Military Saves Month is a great opportunity to help people in our community to Set a Goal, Make a Plan, and Save Automatically,” said CRFCU President/CEO, Terry Langlois. “Through our award-winning Community Heroes Program, we offer Military and Veterans an additional 0.25% on all Share Certificates.”
To encourage service members and their families to save more successfully, Community Resource will be posting helpful tips, stories and tools on their website, www.communityresourcefcu.com and social media channels. All are encouraged to join.
