Some kids in Youngstown learned some important financial lessons thanks to a local company.
Several employees for Huntington Bank, who had the day off Monday for Martin Luther King Day, went to work by volunteering at the Boys and Girls Club. They taught the kids how to save money, how to write a check and how to fill in a deposit slip.
In honor of Martin Luther King Jr., the group wanted to use their knowledge to better the lives of others.
“It’s colleagues coming in on their day off and they’re giving their time because they feel the importance, like Huntington does, of giving back to their community,” said Huntington Regional Marketing Manager Sandra Lisko.
This was the first year the local Huntington bank took part in the National Day of Service.
