Those needing budgeting advice are encouraged to take part in a free virtual financial workshop being presented June 9.

The St. Francis Financial Success Center is partnering in the "Basics of Budgeting" event with the nonprofit United Way of Monmouth and Ocean Counties. There will be two online sessions – 2 and 6 p.m. The services are part of those offered by St. Francis Community Center, Brant Beach, which is located on the same grounds as St. Francis Parish.

Financial coach Delaney Cronin will lead the event. She will discuss various methods to achieve financial success. Topics will include monthly budgeting, preparing for crisis and learning how to prioritize expenses.

The event comes at a time of economic struggles both in New Jersey and the United States, with many businesses being limited in customers or shut down as a means of slowing the spread of COVID-19.

The event is free, but registration is required. Register by emailing Delaney Cronin at DCronin@stfrancislbi.org or calling (609) 494-8861. For more information, visit www.stfranciscenterlbi.org.
