Little green visitors from Redwood invade area

Hundreds of Napa, Calif., residents found green piggy banks on their doorsteps with an invitation to receive $5 by visiting RCU's Napa branch. Also, anyone visiting the branch at 1705 First Street between Jan. 28 and Feb. 28 may be entered in a drawing to win an iPad. The credit union is "committed to helping people find financial wellness, and if there's one thing we've learned over the past couple of years, it's that people want and need help managing their money," said Cherie Knox, manager of the Napa branch. "Not only do credit unions provide affordable banking services, but because we are cooperatives, we have a unique focus on financial education in our communities," she said. "When people know how to make the most of their money, they help to strengthen the cooperative as well as their local economy, and most importantly, can enjoy peace of mind about their daily life and their future," she added. The credit union will focus on spreading the message of financial wellness throughout 2011, including its year-long Amazing Savers Contest, which will follow five contestants as they work to improve their financial situation over several months of competition for a $10,000 prize.
