Via Credit Union / Kendall branch has special this month for student savers

Posted on Dec. 01 2015 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
Did you know that Via Credit Union and Marion Community Schools operate a cooperative educational program here at Kendall, a Student Operated Branch?

The mission of the cooperative is to help students learn about money and to establish money management skills.

The Student Operated Branch is open every Wednesday morning prior to school and accepts deposits only. As an incentive to save at their school, each time a student makes a deposit their name is placed into a weekly and monthly drawing.

This month, though, there's an added bonus: Students who make a deposit of at least $5 during December will receive a Christmas tree snack cake treat!

Money management skills will help your student throughout their lifetime! If you would like for your child to start saving at the Kendall Student Branch, please complete a permission slip and return it along with a deposit. Permission slips are available in the office.

It's that time of year again: The Marion Community Schools annual holiday cards are now available to order!
