Community & Financial Resources Fair in Photos

Community & Financial Resources Fair in Photos

If you've been keeping tabs we, the good folks at CFRC, opened our doors to the community to host our first ever "Community Resources Open House". It was a great success. In addition to our sponsor for the event, California United Bank represented by Michael Richman, representatives from other financial institutions showed up with tables and pens ready to answer questions from the participants.

Midway through the event three raffles were held as well as a hearty lunch from Subway. A surprise treat was that everyone in attendance received a voucher to claim a free credit report and score from either Equifax or Transunion; courtesy of HSBC. The event attracted people from all around community and proved to be a success in introducing people to financial services. The organization found it to be such a success that another open house will be in the works for the summer (hopefully, avoiding the rain in the process).

The CFRC staff would like to thank Jeff Hernandez and David Luna of E1 Financial Credit Union, Jose Figueroa of Broadway Federal Bank, Vernell Taylor of Union Bank, Citibank and HSBC.

Inside the Biztech training room tables displayed vital community and economic resources - ranging from low cost child care to a free refrigerator exchange program.
