BIZ KID$ Program
In celebration of our 65th Anniversary we were looking for a way to give back to our membership community.  We submitted a grant to the National Credit Union Foundation to purchase Biz Kid$ kits for each of the 21 middle schools in HCPSS.  We won the grant and will be presenting the kits to the middle school FACs teachers at a Presentation Event in December.  Go on line to Biz Kid$ to see the fun financial education programs that our middle school students will get a chance to enjoy.
