Greek Organizations to Help with Money Management Workshop
Omaha - Two Greek organizations at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO), together with the Urban Financial Services Coalition of Omaha and the First National Loan Production Office, will present a free financial education workshop for citizens in the Omaha metro area Saturday, Sept. 10.
The event, "Money Management: A Path to Home Ownership," will be held from 10 a.m. to noon at the Omaha Small Business Network, 2505 N. 24th St., Suite 112.
Members of the UNO chapters of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity and Zeta Phi Beta Sorority will be among the presenters for the workshop sessions, which will focus on an introduction to banking services, how to choose and keep a checking account, how to keep track of your money, an introduction to credit, why you should save, learning investing basics, knowing what you're borrowing before you buy and learning what home ownership is all about.
"This workshop is just one example of the many community service activities conducted each year by students involved in Greek life at UNO," said Corey Stutte, an adviser in Student Organizations and Leadership Programs at UNO.
The morning sessions will be followed by a complimentary lunch and a question-and-answer session from noon to 1 p.m.
Those who pre-register for the event will be eligible to receive a free 3-in-1 credit report that can be analyzed by a banking professional. In addition, all registered attendees will be eligible to win one of three drawings for a prepaid Visa gift card in amounts of $75, $50 and $25.
The registration deadline is Sept. 5. For more information, call (402) 880-6100.
