Ameriana Educates Local Children

NEW CASTLE, Ind. (Jul. 22, 09) As a growing number of Americans discover the importance of financial literacy, financial advisers stress the need to teach lessons about money to children at an early age.  To give children a basic financial understanding, Ameriana Bank participated in the American Bankers Association’s Teach Children to Save program.  Through this program, Ameriana associates entered local schools during the past month and helped nearly 1,800 students understand money matters such as the importance of saving.

“The children really enjoyed going through the interactive discussion about money,” said Andrea Sanders, Personal Banker at Ameriana’s West Carmel banking center. “They were excited to participate in the discussion and enthusiastically asked questions about saving, finances and the current economy.”

Ameriana utilized age-appropriate financial lessons provided for banks nationwide by the ABA, and Ameriana’s efforts to teach children to save will be counted toward the ABA’s goal of reaching 1 million children through the program. The ABA initiated the program 13 years ago when it found children were not receiving the financial education they needed to achieve financial freedom. 

Ameriana Bancorp is a bank holding company.  Through its wholly owned subsidiary, Ameriana Bank, SB, the Company offers an extensive line of bankingservices and provides a range of investments and securities products through banking centers in the central Indiana area.  Ameriana owns Ameriana Insurance Agency, a full-service insurance agency, and has an interest in Family Financial Holdings, Inc.  Ameriana Financial Services offers securities and insurance products through LPL Financial (Member FINRA/SIPC).
