YPS “The Piggy Bank” Program Teaching Students at Long Elementary Money Saving Skills

On Monday, November 9th, United Way of Southern Nevada (UWSN) launched the third “Piggy Bank,” a unique financial literacy program designed to teach students of Howard Long Elementary School how to save money by simulating a traditional banking experience.

“The Piggy Bank” is a collaboration between United Way’s Young Philanthropists Society (YPS), Walter V Long Elementary School, Silver State Schools Credit Union (SSSCU), Andson Inc. and various volunteers who donated time and materials to build a kid-friendly bank that includes a bank teller counter and decals on the walls with money saving tips.
