Salisbury Bank employees joined thousands of bankers across the country who visited schools on Tuesday, April 27, as part of the American Bankers Association Education Foundation's National Teach Children to Save Day, a financial literacy program established in 1997. The program's objective is to reach five million students prior to the end of 2011. Bank volunteers presented lessons on budgeting, earnings, savings and much more.
"When one child learns a useful saving strategy and shares it with another, or one student takes a new money game home to share with the family, we have made an impact," said Rick Cantele, President and CEO.
Salisbury Bank volunteers taught Colebrook Consolidated students in grades K-6 the vital role banks and bankers play in assisting young people to grow and develop lifelong saving habits.
