Statistics from Bishop Eaton

Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton recently wrote the following to rostered leaders:

"Recent national surveys have pointed to the lack of financial preparedness by all age groups in all walks of life:

In a well-publicized Federal Reserve study, nearly half of the respondents reported that they would have a difficult time paying for a $400 emergency expense.

From the same study, nearly one-third of working-age respondents reported having no retirement savings."

What do you think MacArthur Park could do to help the many people reflected in these statistics?
