Helping Neighbors: The Importance Of Financial Health

F.I.S.H. OF SANCAP, with Fifth Third Bank of Fort Myers, is offering a 3-part Empower-U™ financial series: Budgeting and Saving Money, Boost Your Credit Score and Strategies to Slash Your Debt in a ninety-minute session on Thurs., Sept. 14, 2017 from 5:00 p.m. – 6: 30 p.m. at The Sanibel Community Church located at 1740 Periwinkle Way. A budget is a plan to set and reach financial goals. Whether your goals are to pay off debt or create a savings or retirement fund, once you understand the overall picture of your finances--specifically, identifying how money flows in and out of your life--you can better see how to reach those goals. States FISH Program Director Kathy Y. Monroe, M.S.W., “This session will attempt to help individuals develop a plan for budgeting and saving which can lead to boosting their credit score, while helping to eliminate debt. Financial health is just as important as physical health, because lacking the first can have an impact on the latter. The presenter, AVP, Financial Center Manager, Cheryl McConahy will introduce this information in a very interesting and interactive manner. Persons will leave this session knowing how to create a budget, interpret a credit score and manage debt.” This workshop is complimentary and open to the community. Light refreshments will be provided, and participants will receive a certificate of completion.
