The sixth annual Northern Illinois Money Smart Week is quickly approaching and area organizations gathered to celebrate its kickoff.
Money Smart Week will be held April 20 through April 27. It's a week's worth of classes and events aimed at helping consumers make informed choices when managing their personal finances. Over 100 local organizations from businesses to not-for-profits will volunteer their time.
"We have over 164 topics ranging from auto care for women, shopping on a budget, we have programs for kids at the Discovery Center, YMCA, Boys and Girls Clubs, and schools," Money Smart Week Co-Chair Kristen Comer said.
