Monroe County Money Smart Week

$$Money $mart Week$$

Wondering where to refer clients with disabilities who need to become more financially savvy? On Friday, October 14th at the Monroe County Public Library, there will be a Kickoff Event and Fair to the Monroe County Money Smart Week. Gather in the public library's atrium where Bloomington's mayor and members of local financial literacy groups will discuss the events for the week. Local service providers will also be on hand to  show off the tools needed to master finances.

For service providers:
On Monday, October 17, 2011 from 3:15-5:00 pm at Bloomington City Hall, providers who serve people from Monroe, Brown, Greene, and Owen counties will come together to share information about their services and to connect with colleagues.

Registration is from 2:45 to 3:15 pm. From 3:15 to 4:40 pm, each organization will have two minutes to share about their programs that help clients become and stay financially stable. After the event, there will be a reception in the atrium where you can enjoy refreshments and pick up brochures from other agencies. Feel free to bring your brochures -- about 50 copies -- to place on the information tables in the atrium.

RSVP by Friday, October 7 to Ashley Hall at ash@monroeunitedway.org. In your RSVP, please indicate if you would like to give a brief (2 minute) presentation about your programs and services and/or if you would like to bring brochures for the resource tables.
