Kids at the Boys & Girls Club Friday learned to dodge financial troubles … and balls.
Employees from several financial institutions stopped by the club to spread some “financial literacy,” and some love on the dodgeball court.
Christina Henderson, financial analyst with Merrill Lynch, said even the youngest students had really smart questions.
“They wanted to know, what is a bank and why do you go there and what’s a savings account,” she said.
They also wanted to know if there’s such a thing as a money tree – we wish! – and why are piggy banks always pigs?
We don’t know the answer to that one, but they definitely had some fun later with the Bank of America employees dodging balls and throwing a few of their own.
