ABCO Celebrates National CU Youth Week; Donates Trees to Fourth Grade Foresters

 

Every April credit unions around the country celebrate youth during National CU Youth Week.

This year ABCO gave back to the community's youth and the environment by donating trees to local schools as a part of the Fourth Grade Foresters project.

Since 2007 more than 391,000 fourth graders, all across America rolled up their sleeves and planted a tree as a part of the project to help revitalize a remarkable idea: Arbor Day at School.

ABCO donated trees to four area schools including the Alexander Denbo School in Browns Mills, the Orchard Friends School in Riverton, the Egg Harbor Community School in Egg Harbor City, and the Aura Elementary School in Glassboro.

Also during this week parents were encouraged to open savings accounts at the credit union to start kids on the path to sound financial management at a young age. Children 17 and under who opened an account during Youth Week received a Fundamentals of Money Fun Pack that included a guide to money, a piggy bank and a museum or movie ticket.

ABCO encourages financial literacy in classrooms year-round. Learn about having an ABCO professional come to speak in your classroom
