ADVISORY/U.S. Bank in Cincinnati Participates in National Teach Children to Save Day on April 10Bank Employee Volunteers at Heberle School To Teach Students Financial ABCs

CINCINNATI, Apr 9, 2003 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- On Thursday, April 10, Sonia Blasiak, an investment management associate for U.S. Bank at 425 Walnut Street, will start students at Heberle School, 2015 Fremn Avenue on the path to a positive financial future by participating in the seventh annual National Teach Children to Save Day, a nationwide event to teach kids their financial ABCs.

"While many of today's kids are computer savvy, many don't know the basics of saving money and money management," said Blasiak. "National Teach Children to Save Day starts kids off on the right path to saving for their future."

Sponsored by the American Bankers Association Education Foundation (ABAEF), National Teach Children to Save Day is a day when bankers make presentations in schools across the country to students in kindergarten through 12th grade.

On April 10, U.S. Bank employees will teach children about money and savings, covering topics such as budgeting, the difference between needs and wants, why it's important to save for emergencies and how interest makes money grow. Students will have an opportunity to apply concepts and practices through games and other hands-on activities.

"Bankers are experts at saving money and investing, so it's a natural fit for them to visit classrooms to teach students how their money can grow," said Donald Ogilvie, executive vice president of the ABA. "Students who become smart savers today can become smart investors and money managers tomorrow."
