Family Game Night
Part of our ongoing work with families is stressing the importance of reading, activities and family togetherness. On April 2nd and 5th, we partnered with Hosmer and North Regional Libraries to introduce over 20 families to the game Set. Thanks to the families and volunteers who participated!
In partnership with the FATHER Project and Lutheran Social Services, we recently presented three financial literacy classes to our Way to Grow families. Over 40 families took part. We provide day care for their children, so while parents are learning about savings and financial stability, the children are making piggy banks and working with play money.
Jim Davnie, who helped facilitate the class, is a financial educator with Lutheran Social Service Financial Counseling in Minneapolis. In that role Jim speaks each year to many community groups, business gatherings, church congregations, high school classes and others about personal finance and consumer protection.
