Siouxland is doing its part to build a stronger community by teaching people to be smarter with their money.
The Center for Siouxland kicked off its Money Smart Week on Friday with a financial literacy workshop at the Sioux City Salvation Army. It's a week long public awareness campaign to promote financial education across all age groups. The keynote speaker at Friday's event said it's important to teach kids the value of a dollar at a young age.
"Statistics show that by the time a child is finished with the fifth grade they've already developed their attitude about money and about handling of money, and so we have to start young. Obviously we need to start when their young and they see you walk up to that ATM machine and just pull that money out, that it's money that you've earned," said Renee Beaulieu, CFO of Thompson Electric.
