Pelican State CU Featured in Season 2 of PBS' Show "Opportunity Knock$"

Pelican State Credit Union is thrilled to announce that it will appear on the second season of PBS’ “Opportunity Knock$,” alongside Denham Springs couple, Bobbye Wallace and Wesley Wolfe.

The reality television show follows six families as they take control of their finances with the help of renowned financial experts and local credit unions.

At a time when more than 60% of Americans are living paycheck-to-paycheck, a lack of knowledge of financial resources and strategy continually prevents families and individuals from identifying ways to break free from financial hardship.

Pelican State was chosen to participate in the groundbreaking reality television show thanks to its Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) Certification.

The credit union first appeared on “Opportunity Knock$” groundbreaking first season, in which the credit union helped Lake Charles couple Charles and Tiffany White. That season went on to win the prestigious Silver Telly Award for Best Reality Television Program.

Representing Pelican on Opportunity Knock$, Financial Outreach Manager Lisa Lee worked with Bobbye and Wesley to improve their credit, create a reasonable budget, and save money by refinancing their loans with Pelican.
