The Henrico County office of Virginia Cooperative Extension will hold free virtual workshops in February and March to help consumers improve their savings and strengthen their credit ratings.

The Keys to Saving workshop will be held from noon to 1 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 24 as part of America Saves Week. Participants will learn strategies for saving money to cover unexpected expenses, pay for needs and reduce debt. From Feb. 21-25, Extension also will share a series of videos on its Facebook page to underscore America Saves Week’s theme of “building financial resilience.”

The Know Your Reports workshop will be held from 6 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 8 in conjunction with National Consumer Protection Week (March 6-12).
