|On Tuesday, April 24th FirstBank associates Melinda Pulliam, Pam Theis, Heather Steele, Karen Risner and Lee Pitt participated in "Teach Children to Save Day" at Shwab Elementary in Nashville. The team worked with the students to teach them how to make good decisions with their money and the difference between needs and wants. They also explained how to identify expenses, demonstrate ways to cut spending and show how to maintain bank accounts. FirstBank is proud to partner each year with the American Bankers Association and help educate our youth.
Teach Children to Save Day is a component of the national Teach Children to Save campaign. The campaign aims to raise awareness about the important role that banks and bankers play in helping young people develop lifelong savings habits. So far it's reached more than 5 million young people with the help of some 100,000 plus banker volunteers. This year Teach Children to Save Day was celebrated on April 24, while bankers will give lessons throughout the year.
