F.I.S.H. of Sanibel-Captiva to hold financial workshop

F.I.S.H. of Sanibel-Captiva and Fifth Third Bank will host “Taking Charge of Your Financial Health” on April 19 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Sanibel Community Church, at 1740 Periwinkle Way.

Ruben Perales, financial wellness relationship manager of Lee and Collier counties, will lead the discussion. The workshop will help individuals and families learn how to set up a basic budget, slash debt and boost credit scores.

“This session will attempt to help individuals develop a plan for budgeting and saving which can lead to boosting their credit score while helping to eliminate debt,” F.I.S.H. Program Director Kathy Monroe said. “Financial health is just as important as physical health, because lacking the first can have an impact on the latter. Mr. Perales will introduce this information in a very interesting and interactive manner. Participants will leave this session knowing how to create a budget, interpret a credit score and manage debt.”

Snacks will be provided.

RSVPs requested by April 17.
