Bank of Louisiana donated $500 to the Louisiana Kids In Motion.
Kids In Motion is a local program that supports at-risk middle school aged young people by teaching them to value work, their community and their future. Kids in Motion is under the umbrella of Douglass Community Services.
In addition to character growth, kids involved in the program have the opportunity to earn money through community service projects. On their first “pay day” Bank of Louisiana also provides a mini-lesson on money management.
Topics such as how to recognize needs versus wants, and the importance of saving money and how interest works are discussed with the participants. If you are interested in supporting Kids In Motion and the youth of your community, please contact Amy Vaughn 573-221-3892 extension 246.
