United Financial Credit Union was able to help local students celebrate National Financial Literacy Month in April – with the help from a MCUF Grant, United Financial was able to purchase 225 books to donate to K-2nd graders at local schools in Saginaw, Bridgeport and Auburn. Robin Naugle, the Auburn Branch Manager was able to record herself reading the books for the students to watch (due to Covid-19 and being unable to attend the classrooms in person).
They used the book Bunny Money for the K-1st grade and Pigs will be Pigs: Fun with Math and Money for the 2nd graders. Both of the books talk about money and give a fun little lesson on being able to have enough money to purchase something they want.
The Credit Union put together a packet with the books and an activity for each student at the local schools. They also recorded the activity that went along with the book for the students to follow along with. The students and teachers were all excited to receive a book that they were able to keep.
