Programs offered during Federal Reserve’s Money Smart Week

MB Financial Bank announced that it will again participate in the Federal Reserve Bank’s Money Smart Week campaign. MB will offer nearly two dozen free financial education classes and seminars for consumers across the Chicago area during the week of April 18 - 25.

Money Smart Week® is a public awareness campaign designed to help consumers better manage their personal finances. This is achieved through the collaboration and coordinated effort of hundreds of organizations across the country including businesses, financial institutions, schools, libraries, not-for-profits, government agencies and the media.

The programs offered by MB Financial Bank will cover important consumer topics such as the importance of saving, how to avoid credit card misuse, identity theft, the basics of home buying and money management for college students. Among the organizations partnering with MB in offering these programs are Catholic Charities, the Village of Glenwood Senior Center, Prairie State College, the Calumet City Clerk, the YWCA and YMCA and the Safer Foundation.

Vicky Arroyo, President of MB Financial Bank Community Development said, “MB Financial Bank is pleased to help members of our community learn more about their finances and to pick up important money management skills. We know how important it is for all consumers to protect their financial health and safety and we’re happy to help them do so through these free programs.”
