Do you try to teach your kids how to save money? Tuesday morning, Citizen Bank employees visited Dr. Martin Luther King Junior School as part of the “Teach Children to Save” program.

The goal is to help children learn and understand basic money management skills and to develop lifelong saving habits.

Business Banking Regional Manager Melissa Hawryschul said, “It’s our job to provide them the resources and let them know what's available, especially at their age. It’s a great feeling to know that you're part of that knowledge piece for them and to be able to provide that for them is just great.”

In 17 years, the "Teach Children to Save" program has reached more than five-million students.
