Austin Children's Shelter Reality Fair

Austin Chapter of Credit Unions (ACCU) hosted a Reality Fair for approximately 20 young adults for our community partner, Austin Children's Shelter. Additionally, ACCU was also able to donate several items on the Austin Children's Shelter's wishlist.

The Reality Fair consisted of 3 upfront classroom financial education classes given by ACCU's training coordinator Matt Schweitzer, TruWest CU. After the classroom instruction, the remainder of the board participated in a fun and exciting simulation of spending & budgeting based on career & lifestyle choices.

ACCU would like to thank Lindsay Contreras of Austin Children's Shelter for helping coordinate the event and the Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation for the grant making this event possible.
