South Bend, IN – 1st Source Bank is teaming up with the United Way and South Bend Community Schools to teach students at four area high schools about using credit wisely. The presentations coincide with National Get Smart about Credit Day, a national campaign to raise awareness about the dos and don’ts of using a credit card.
1st Source bankers will visit Adams, Clay, Washington and Riley High Schools throughout the week to offer insight to students and their parents. Presentations will be held following the end of the school day at 3:00.
