CTI Offers Free Budgeting Workshop During Lowell Women’s Week
Lowell, MA—As part of Lowell Women’s Week, CTI puts the spotlight on family and individual finances in a free Budgeting Workshop to be held on Wednesday, March 3, 2010, from 1:30-3:30pm, at CTI’s Family Resource Network, located at 169 Merrimack Street, 3rd floor. “We’ve reserved 20 seats for women across the community to join us for an inspiring and educational workshop that will feature a professional Financial Literacy Counselor and Educator,” says Center Director Chris Santos Gordon. “She will provide practical suggestions for building a budget and discuss how every woman can more successfully accommodate household expenses, while reserving something for savings.” CTI’s Women, Infants and Children (WIC) nutrition program will provide delicious food samples and healthy family recipes that can be made on a tight budget. Attendees will be able to take away a free copy of Susie Ormand’s latest book Women and Money; receive “give aways” from the WIC program to make meal preparation easier; be entered into a raffle to win a $25 Market Basket Gift Certificate; and be eligible to sign up for free one-to-one Financial Counseling.
If you are interested in attending this workshop, please call Gladys Santiago at 978 654-5080, ext. 11. Registration is limited to 20 .
