Banking On Our Future (BOOF) Day with Operation HOPE at Bitely Elementary School



Once again, East West Bank partnered with Operation HOPE for another successful “Banking On Our Future” (BOOF) Day to provide financial literacy education to the students of Bitely Elementary School in Rosemead, California. Despite the pouring rain, 24 dedicated East West Bank teacher-volunteers gathered together in the morning of December 12, 2014 to lead and inspire 319 students on how to have a better understanding on money management. The teacher-volunteers engaged with students from 3rd to 6th grade levels as they focused on the topics of budgeting and checking & savings accounts. The teacher-volunteers interacted with the students through group discussions, problem solving activities, and helped them complete the student workbook. This program provided the young students an opportunity to learn and better plan for their financial future. At the end of every class, students received wonderful prize giveaways and enjoyed taking photos with their awesome teacher-volunteers.
