Delta Community Credit Union Takes Part in National Financial Literacy Month
Georgia’s Largest Credit Union Holds Activities in April to Educate and Serve Metro Atlanta Consumers
ATLANTA (April 7, 2014) – According to a recent NFCC Financial Literacy Survey, more than 65 percent of consumers do not have a budget, with many uneducated about how to manage their personal finances. With a focus on enhancing the financial education of its members, as well as young people and families in metro Atlanta, Delta Community Credit Union (www.DeltaCommunityCU.com), announces its participation in April’s National Financial Literacy Month.
“At Delta Community, we strive to support our members with the financial tools and knowledge they need to be financially savvy,” explains Eve Nimkar, vice president of marketing at Delta Community Credit Union. “Throughout the year, we provide members with ongoing opportunities to learn and grow financially, including free seminars and events. To celebrate National Financial Literacy Month, we’re hosting several events for our current members and metro Atlanta residents of all ages to encourage the practice of following sound financial management principles.”

Delta Community is a state-chartered credit union organized under the Georgia Department of Banking and Finance, and its deposit accounts are federally insured through the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund.
