TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE — Travis Credit Union and Travis Air Force Base are working together next week as part of a Department of Defense effort to help military families and DoD civilian employees to improve their financial well-being.

Military Saves is part of the Defense Department’s Financial Readiness Campaign to motivate military families to save more of their income every month. It also encourages military leaders and organizations to be more aggressive in promoting saving. The program encourages all service members, their families and civilian employees to take the Military Saves pledge.

Travis Credit Union is partnering with Travis to present Military Saves Week, which runs from Feb. 25 through March 1 with the theme Build Wealth, Not Debt.

The kick-off event is scheduled from 10 to 11 a.m. Feb. 25 at the Travis Credit Union at 659 Skymaster Drive. It will include a Youth Day with Travis Credit Union hosting a free financial education story time with children from the base’s Child Development Center. The story time will include gift bags and a youth accounts brochure.

A representative from the Airmen & Family Readiness Center will give an overview of Military Saves Week and the Travis Credit Union’s part of the event.

Travis Credit Union will offer eight classes during the week: Organize Your Financial Records at 11:30 a.m. Feb. 25; Credit Ability at 9 a.m. Feb. 26; Investing Fundamentals at 9 a.m. Feb. 27; 10 Steps to Financial Success at 11:30 a.m. Feb. 27; Home Buying/Foreclosure Avoidance at 9 a.m. Feb. 28; Psychology of Spending at 11:30 a.m. Feb. 28; Fundamentals of IRAs at 11:30 a.m. March 1; and Take The Wheel: Best Car Deal at 5 p.m. March 1.
