ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

By Lindsay Peyton

Teaching finances to elementary students can be a tough task -- but a group of Wells Fargo bankers signed up to lend a hand.

On Thursday, April 27, a couple hundred of the company’s employees in Washington state volunteered to join a national financial effort called “Teach Children to Save Day,” sponsored by the American Bankers Association. Together, the volunteers brought their message to 102 classrooms in 20 different schools across the state.

The outreach was also part of Junior Achievement of Washington’s “JA Day.” The non-profit youth organization offers a curriculum of civics and economics lessons.

More than 550 children enrolled in Mount View Elementary, 10811 12th Ave SW, learned how to save and manage their money wisely as part of the effort.

Tim Brown was one of the 20 Wells Fargo volunteers who took over teaching duties at Mount View.

“We talked about community and jobs, products and production,” he said. “Our mission at Wells Fargo is to help people with their financial needs – and help them succeed financially. And we can start when they’re young.”
