“The COVID-19 Public Health Crisis has changed the financial aspects of so many people’s lives and this financial wellness webinar will help them identify how to start picking up the pieces and what resources are available to help.  said Tom Gabriel, President and CEO of United Way of Westchester and Putnam. “KeyBank has been a longtime partner with the United Way and has committed itself to working with us to help those who are living paycheck -to-paycheck or in poverty.”

The Webinar is sponsored through KeyBank’s Young Professionals Business Impact and Networking group and will be presented by Key@Work Relationship Manager Sara Camacho, and Area Retail Leader Matt Lake. The session offers tools and guidance to help attendees assess their financial health, define their financial goals and objectives and build a path to financial success.  It will also include time for attendees to ask financial questions to the presenters.

“Strong and sound financial habits are built over time,” said Camacho.  “Making the decision to become financially well is the first step of a journey that can take several months to several years.  The good news is everyone can become more financially healthy by putting good habits in place.”
