WEST LAFAYETTE – By teaching kids how to save for their goals, they’ll have learned an important skill by the time they’re teens — consistent saving.
MaKayla Adams, Conquest Cudworth, Dominick Fattore, Leila Lowery, Hallie McAllister, Kedzie Paz, Alexis Roeder and Leah Wedow were recently honored as Purdue Federal Credit Union Super Savers and rewarded with a $100 VISA gift card to purchase school supplies.
The eight children were randomly drawn to go shopping with Purdue Federal President and CEO Bob Falk and gear up for school with a $100 Visa gift card after participating in Purdue Federal’s Super Saver contest.
To enter the contest accountholders earned one drawing entry for each $5 deposit made into their $avers & $ense Club accounts from March 1 to April 30.
It is never too early to start children on the right financial path. Individuals interested in $avers & $ense Club youth savings accounts may stop by a Purdue Federal branch, call 765-497-3328 or 800-627-3328, or visit purduefed.com .
