Gerber FCU Donates 700 Books to Local Second Grade Students

FREMONT, Mich. (4/2/18) John Buckley, President/CEO of Gerber Federal Credit Union (Gerber FCU), read the book The Penny Pot by Stuart J. Murphy to second grade students at local schools during the month of March.  The popular book illustrates a day at the face-painting booth during the school fair and provides plenty of opportunities to count combinations of coins adding up to fifty.  

Following the book read, Buckley discussed good money management and presented every student, their teacher and their school library with a copy of the book.  Gerber Federal Credit Union donated a total of 685 books to the following school districts: Big Jackson, Fremont, Fremont Christian, Grant Christian, Grant, Hesperia, Holton, Newaygo and White Cloud.

“It is always a pleasure to read to these kids and have them react as they do.  We discussed how the children in the book putting their extra pennies into a pot to help out a friend is very similar to how credit unions work!  Members pool their money in order to be able to provide loans to those who need them.  Great discussion and lessons learned, we look forward to our next visit!” said John Buckley.
