Credit Union Teaches Kids About Money

EUGENE, Ore. — A local credit union is giving out free money boxes that are meant to teach children about being responsible with money.

They’re called moonjars. Each moonjar is made up of three different boxes labeled spend, save, and share.

Northwest Community Credit Union has 10,000 of the money banks to give out, and you don’t have to be a member of the credit union to get one.

“One of the ways we give back to our community is with financial literacy or education. We like to start with children. Money is part of the world and they need to learn about that part as well, and we can help them,” said Scott Smith, Chief Experience Officer.

Credit union staff say the moonjars have already proven to be popular.
