  • Give the gift of help

    More times than not, people assume community is simply a group of individuals in the same area. Community is so much more than just that. It is a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals.

  • Saving challenges for women

    America Saves, a national campaign that promotes savings, notes significant differences in savings between men and women. A 2016 survey showed that woman were notably behind across 12 important financial indicators including consumer debt, savings habits, emergency savings, and general savings progress. As concerns continue to rise over American’s often inadequate retirement and emergency savings, it’s become clear that the gender disparity can no longer be pushed aside.

  • Five mistakes when reading food labels

     Food and Health Communications shares these common mistakes made by consumers when trying to make healthy food choices.

    Mistake one: Ignore the label. Nutrition facts labels are a great source of tons of information about the food inside the package, yet many people completely ignore them.
