Muncie, IN—PrimeTrust Federal Credit Union is teaming up with the beloved Berenstain Bears to teach children the responsible money management concept Save, Share, Spend, Earn. PrimeTrust is an official sponsor of The Berenstain Bears Financial Literacy Program, a youth education and outreach program created in response to the growing need for financial literacy. This partnership means young members of PrimeTrust will be exposed to money management in a fun, engaging way. Moms, dads, grandmas, grandpas, aunts, and uncles will also benefit knowing their efforts are being supported by their Credit Union and reinforced by the iconic Berenstain Bears.
The Bears will make their first appearance at Minnestrista’s free Family Adventure Day on Wednesday, March 22. Then the Bears will be at Family Fun Night at Mitchell and North View Elementary Schools on Wednesday, March 29 and Thursday, March 30.
