MSUFCU’s FUNtivity Zone Provides Free Kid-Friendly Activities

 

EAST LANSING, Mich. — MSU Federal Credit Union (MSUFCU) has introduced its FUNtivity Zone to provide fun and educational activities, lessons, games, recipes, and videos to engage its youth members. Each week, new activities and videos are posted with themes such as “Setting and Reaching Goals” and “Wants vs. Needs.”

 

“We created the FUNtivity Zone to support parents and youth members during this time when they are in need of new and exciting things to do,” said Deidre Davis, MSUFCU Chief Marketing Officer. “With attention-grabbing activities, resources, and contests offered as another free member benefit, we hope to be an additional source of financial education for families.”
