United Way of Greenwood and Abbeville Counties will host a FREE Credit Counseling Class here at the United Center. Gail Koerber, Vice President of Lending at Neighbors United Credit Union, will be teaching this class.
The class is open to everyone in the community! We do have to have a headcount, so if you want to come, or if you want to extend this invitation to any of your clients, friends, or family members, please (have them) call me at 229-0123 before August 16.
Mrs. Koerber taught this class for us previously to such rave reviews that we wanted to have it again, this time it’s open to anyone who is interested. I have received lots of calls from local churches/agencies/businesses, with people wanting to know if we have any non-profit financial counseling services in the Greenwood area. We no longer have a specific agency for this, so we at United Way have been hosting different types of financial classes here. They are all free! I will keep you posted as we have them.
Our teacher will cover specific topics like how to bring your credit score up, what things to avoid financially, credit scams, good/bad places to get loans, interest rates, how debts affect your credit score. It’s a great class for people who haven’t made the best choices with their money and are starting to climb back out of the hole. It’s also good information for people who just don’t know a lot about the financial world.
