Teach Children to Save Day

April 19, 2013 | Return to News & Updates

Teach Children to Save is a national campaign that promotes the partnership between banks and schools by teaching and helping young people develop lifelong savings habits. The 2013 annual awareness day, Teach Children to Save Day, is Tuesday, April 23rd.

County National Bank is again participating in this important effort. Last year our bankers visited about 40 classrooms and presented to over 900 elementary students. Our bankers read grade-level appropriate books, like Bunny MoneyAlexander, Who Used to Be Rich Last Sunday, andRock, Brock, and the Savings Shock, and they also prepare interactive activities and lessons on the topic of savings. Activity books and goodies are left for the teacher to distribute.

Bankers are experts at money management, so it’s a natural fit for us to be involved in financial education efforts. We have scheduled classroom visits throughout the month of April, and we’re excited to be a part of Teach Children to Save!
