To spark kid’s interest in saving, join Sparky’s Kids Club by opening a Youth Savings Account!
Children, 12 and under, enjoy special Youth Member Perks. Sparky, the Dalmatian, and Smokey, the pig, will help us teach kids about finances and the importance of saving. Sparky has a “treat jar” filled with goodies that kids can “dig” into after visiting us in the branch. This type of positive experience helps children become familiar with the branch and banking. As children grow, so do Sparky’s Kids Club resources. By elementary school, kids can use Sparky’s Goal Tracking Sheet which teaches them how to set a budget and visualize savings goals. And as years of youth membership continue so do good savings habits. Together, we can help kids develop the rewarding, life-long skill of saving!
Sparky’s Kids Club Perks:
- FREE coin counting for Youth Members
- A chance to “dig” into Sparky’s Treat Jar when visiting an FFCCU branch.
- Coloring pages and stickers
- Sparky’s Kids Club Newsletter filled with fun savings facts, recipes, and contests. (Check out the most recent coloring contest entries below!)
- Special Birthday Greetings from Sparky plus, an opportunity to earn some extra birthday cash! During the birthday month, bring their birthday card into any FFCCU Branch, make a deposit of $5 or more, and as a birthday gift, Sparky will also deposit $5 into their Youth Account!
- A chance to adopt Smokey, the pig! After opening a Youth Account, pick Smokey, the piggy bank, up from any FFCCU Branch. Take him home, fill him up with change, then come back for a “piggyback”! We’ll match your child’s deposit, up to $5**, piggybacking on their good savings habits.
