East West Bank and Operation Hope - Banking on Our Future (BOOF) Day



On February 26, 2016 East West Bank hosted a BOOF Day at Mildred B. Janson Elementary School in Rosemead, California. East West Bank and Operation Hope have been partners for several years and this event kicks off our first event for 2016. Students and teachers welcomed 21 bank volunteers from local area branches who taught about the basics of banking and budgeting. A total of 164 3rd and 4th grade students where taught on the difference between “Needs and Wants”, Budgeting and provided an Introduction to Banking. East West Bank hopes that by providing students the tools they need to take control of their financial futures that it will empower them in lifelong decisions.
