Wells Fargo team member volunteers participated in the American Bankers Association’s Teach Children to Save Day initiative. Since April is National Financial Education Month, the volunteers spent the month focusing their financial education-related efforts on children and youth.
This year, more than 1,700 Wells Fargo volunteers connected with students and families in schools and community centers throughout the country. The volunteers incorporated creativity and fun into their financial education presentations. All totaled they delivered more than 2,200 savings lessons to approximately 84,000 individuals during the month-long campaign.
“Supporting the Teach Children to Save campaign is an example of Wells Fargo team members’ dedication and commitment to helping build stronger communities and individuals,” said Chairman and CEO John Stumpf. “Teaching children how to consciously save money is a powerful tool that will enrich their lives in future years.”
Delivering free financial education lessons is an important focus for many Wells Fargo volunteers. Utilizing Hands on Banking®, Wells Fargo’s free financial education program, team members provide age and occupation appropriate lessons to: kids, teens, young adults, adults, entrepreneurs, seniors and active and inactive service men and women.
Congratulations Wells Fargo!
