Peach State Federal Credit Uion recently partnered with the Berenstain Bears Financial Literacy Program to educate children about the money management concept known as “Save, Share, Spend, Earn.”
As part of the program, Peach State will now offer a Cub Account, a savings account available to kids up to age 13. Children who open Cub Accounts will receive a special Welcome Kit that includes a piggy bank, “The Berenstain Bears Visit the Credit Union” book and special membership card.
The program also includes other books featuring the beloved bears as well as associated lesson plans and activities developed by early childhood education experts. Members of Peach State’s business development team will share the program when they visit schools, libraries and events that offer an oportunity for financial literacy.
“The program is a fun way to introduce people of all ages to the credit union difference and educate children about financial responsibility,” said Peach State Senior Vice President of Marketing Kristen Patton. “We offer products and services to members of all ages and life stages — we’re excited to introduce an account created just for our youngest members.”
