Youth Savings Month

Youth Savings Month

Anchors aweigh! April is National Credit Union Youth month. Join Cash the Savings Dog and Penny the Cat as they set sail on a savings adventure!

Kids, you can climb aboard Cash and Penny’s Cash Cruise by visiting a branch and making a deposit of $10 or more into your Cash Club or Student Savings account by April 30. We’ll enter you to win one of seven fantastic prizes totaling over $1,300: A Portland Spirit Cruise adventure for the whole family; a Willamette JetBoat Excursion package; and five $100 prizes!*

For Cash Club members, our annual coloring contest runs through the month of April as well. You can print out the coloring sheet here, or pick one up at your favorite branch. A coloring sheet will also be included in March-end printed statements. Complete and turn in your work of art to any branch by April 30.  Cash prizes totaling $750 will be given to winners in five age categories!

But the fun doesn’t end in April! We’re sponsoring “The Phantom Tollbooth” presented by the Enchanted Theatre Company at Longview’s Columbia Theatre at 2:00 pm Sunday, May 5.  For families with kids age 3-9, “The Phantom Tollbooth” is an original stage adaptation of the beloved classic. Tickets are $7 each, and 6 tickets are $30.  Join us at 12:30 for fun, FREE children’s activities, brought to you by Fibre Federal Credit Union staff volunteers. Click here for more information and to purchase tickets.

If you have a child or grandchild who doesn’t yet have a Cash Club account for kids 11 and under or a Student Savings account for kids 12-18, now is the perfect time to sign them up. They learn the value of good savings habits, plus they’ll enjoy the other benefits, such as Dollars for A’s, birthday cards, gift cards to local businesses to reward deposits, and more! Learn more about both accounts here.
