PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Kids in Allegheny County can open a free savings account through the “Fund My Future” program hosted by the Homestead Propel Charter School.

It’s open to anyone under age 18 in Allegheny County.

Propel Foundation staffers will be in the lobby of the City-County Building from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Wednesday to sign people up for new accounts.
