Money Smart Week – April 22-29, 2017 – is a week-long series of financial education activities and classes put on by local bankers, credit unions and financial professionals throughout St. Louis City, County and the Metro East area. These classes are to help consumers learn how to manage and improve their personal financial situations.
This networking breakfast introduced pastors to the financial partners that support the mission of the St. Louis Regional Unbanked Task Force (STRUT), brief them on the underlying issues facing our unbanked families and offer partnerships in developing solutions to supporting our families. STRUT also offer workshops during Money Smart Week specific to Pastors and their board members in an effort to support your growing financial educational needs as well.
