Monthly meeting is set for July 18
HUNTINGTON -- Individuals looking to reach financial goals have a free opportunity to learn more about achieving those goals this week.
The Financial $tability Partnership (FSP) of the River Cities is hosting its monthly Financial Fitness Friday meeting from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. July 18 at The Thai House Restaurant.
Through games and activities, participants will learn to budget, save and make the most of their paychecks. Participants will have the opportunity to win movie tickets and other prizes at the event. Free appetizers will also be served. Meetings are the third Friday of the month.
Ruth Bonecutter, an employee at Huntington Federal Savings Bank and a Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program client at the Cabell County Public Library in 2014, attended Financial Fitness Friday in April.
"I had no idea that learning about finances could be so much fun," Bonecutter said in a news release. "We played a game that put us through real-life scenarios. It was a great learning experience and fun at the same time. I laughed so much. I'm really looking forward to the next session."
The FSP and the West Virginia Alliance for Sustainable Families have partnered on the program, funded by the Benedum Foundation, to help West Virginia residents build assets and reach financial independence. During Financial Fitness Fridays, participants partner with a coach to reach their financial goals.
