First Federal teaches local kids about saving

Students around Yamhill County will be visited by staff members from all First Federal branches to learn about saving money.

The financial institution is continuing for the ninth year its partnership with local elementary schools to celebrate Financial Literacy Week. The visiting staff members will talk about the importance of saving money, will encourage students to start thinking about short- and long-term savings goals, and will provide participating students with several gifts to help them get started: a piggy bank, an activity book about saving money, and a coupon to start a savings account at First Federal.

The partnership is designed to bridge a gap in school curriculum, which often does not include money management skills, according to First Federal chief savings officer Rene Bittle.
