Lincoln Military Housing Dinner and a Class

On Wed., Nov. 14, the SDFLC’s Director of Community Outreach, Chase Peckham, conducted two presentations at Lincoln Military Housing’s monthly dinner and class series. The presentations revolved around the topic “Consumer Credit and You.” Topics covered included credit reports, credit scores, and managing debt. The night capped off another successful year of our volunteers and staff providing financial literacy to the residents of Lincoln Military Housing. We really appreciate the great feedback we received and look forward to returning in 2019.
