United Way hosts virtual financial fitness programs

United Way of Hunterdon County continues to provide financial wellness programs so struggling neighbors can work toward becoming, and staying, financially fit. On May 27, join in a free virtual budgeting Lunch-n-Learn workshop from 12:30-1:30 p.m. Participants will receive tips and tools for smart money management, including how to create a budget you can really follow. Financial coaches will be on hand to answer questions and provide a list of resources.

“When life seems out of control, understanding your finances and working to build an emergency savings fund is a good way to take back some control,” explains board member and volunteer financial coach, Becky Testa. This event launches United Way’s virtual Thrive Financial Fitness program that includes unlimited access to virtual coaching sessions and tools and will soon offer a complete library of Financial Fitness Videos.

“The current environment may not allow for in-person meetings but that doesn’t mean we can’t offer programming in different ways. In fact, it is our obligation to continue to offer the community opportunities to work toward improving their financial circumstances, especially during such difficult times,” stresses Claire Spencer, Thrive Coach and Financial Coaching Program Manager.

Thrive Financial Fitness is sponsored by Three Bridges Wealth Advisors. To register for the workshop, contact
