Elizabethtown, NC –First Bank’s Elizabethtown branch, led by Michael Davis, is proud to announce its participation in the National Teach Children To Save Day. Brittney Allen with First Bank recently taught three classes at East Bladen High School, focusing on essential financial literacy topics, as part of this national effort.

National Teach Children To Save Day, celebrated on April 27, aims to instill good savings habits in young people. During these sessions, students learned about developing savings habits, budgeting skills, understanding the difference between needs and wants, and gaining an introduction to credit.

In recognition of East Bladen High School’s participation in these financial education presentations, First Bank has generously donated $500. Allen presented the check to the students, who plan to use the funds to attend a state financial literacy convention this summer. This contribution is part of First Bank’s ongoing commitment to enhancing financial education within the community.

Allen and Davis expressed their enthusiasm about the initiative, stating, “It’s crucial to equip young people with the knowledge and skills they need to manage their finances effectively. We’re excited to support East Bladen High School and help these students prepare for a financially secure future.”

First Bank encourages other schools and non-profits to participate in this valuable program. Presentations can be scheduled through May 10, 2024, with schools receiving a $500 donation for their participation.
