ABCO Donates BizKid$ Financial Literacy Kits to Local Schools

This fall, ABCO representatives Clint Sarion (left) and Joseph Holden (right) have been out and about furnishing teachers with the tools they need to have students leaving their classrooms with a fundamental knowledge of money and business.

Elizabeth Campbell, Librarian/Media Specialist from Chestnut Hill Middle School in Washington Twp. (center), received financial education DVDs for the district. Rachel Joan Hill-Schlacta, business teacher at Buena Regional High School in Atlantic County, received a BizKid$ Startup Kit.

BizKid$ is a financial literacy initiative launched nationally in January 2008. Their goal is inform, educate, inspire and motivate kids of all ages to learn about money, credit, taxes, business, and becoming young entrepreneurs.  The initiative includes a TV series, classroom curriculum, outreach activities, a website and a monthly on-line newsletter.  

A coalition of over 290 credit unions and affiliates from across the country have helped exclusively fund BizKid$ over the past six years.
