Knowing how to save money and economize are important life skills.
To help area residents learn about those important subjects, Columbia, South Carolina's Community Development Department will offer a Start Fresh! Financial Education Series on June 25. The series will cover many topics, including ideas for a summer vacation fund, saving techniques, smart banking, budgeting, building credit and homeownership.
Start Fresh! is recommended for first-time homebuyers or anyone looking to decrease their debt. It will take place at the Charles R. Drew Wellness Center from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.; a light breakfast and lunch will be served. Participants who complete the course will receive gift cards and gift certificates.
To register or for more information, call Ron King at 803-545-0280.
