The third annual America Saves Week began Sunday and runs through Saturday.
During America Saves Week, individuals are encouraged to assess their savings progress and to take action to advance the process. Everyone is encouraged to take positive financial action to build wealth, not debt.
Locally, America Saves Week is being coordinated by the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension Office which offers science-based information and educational programs.
