If you’re looking for a new furry friend, this weekend is the perfect opportunity to find them. The Bryan Animal Center is participating in the nationwide Clear the Shelters initiative, which helps find loving homes for every animal in the shelter.
Bank on Brazos Valley (BOBV), an educational outreach program designed to improve the financial stability of individuals and families in our community, will host the “Passport to Financial Wellness” Credit Fair at the Neal Recreation Center on Thursday, November 1, 2018. This is a “come and go” event where you can learn about smart savings, improving your credit, and jumpstarting your child’s interest in financial success.
WHAT: Bank on Brazos Valley “Passport to Financial Wellness” Credit Fair
WHEN: Thursday, November 1st – 6 PM to 8 PM
WHERE: Neal Recreation Center, 600 N. Randolph, Bryan, TX 77803
This is not your ordinary workshop! Families will be actively involved, one on one, with professionals who can answer their financial questions. Participants will be given a financial “passport” and will travel through different educational booths with guidance from BOBV members. There will be two credit booths that present on what credit is, what credit scores mean, and common credit problems and solutions. In addition, there will be two smart savings booths, one for adults and one for children, helping families learn how to save for their future.
If available, participants are encouraged to bring a copy of their credit report to visit personally with bank representatives to review their credit reports. Attendees will also have the opportunity to apply for a BOBV low or no fee checking account if they do not currently have a bank account.
The Coalition’s mission is to target families and individuals who are either not banked or are underbanked by providing financial literacy and financial management to families and youth. Bank on Brazos Valley encourages financial stability through workshops, seminars, coaching, and financial simulations. The BOBV Coalition is coordinated by the City of Bryan with local partners from financial institutions, the City of College Station, Project Unity, and United Way.
