Each Spring between May and June Citi employees go into classrooms as part of the American Bankers’ Association Teach Children to Save campaign.  This year Citi partnered with First Book to read from and donate books on financial literacy to elementary schools serving kids in K through 8th grade.

This morning, Miami Children’s Initiative hosted its newest partner, Citi, at Charles R. Drew K-8 Center, as part of this initiative.  It was a massive success!  Here is what Charles R. Drew K-8 Center School Counselor, Ms. Vasquez, shared about the event…

“I would like to say THANK YOU to Citi!!! The entire staff and all of the students loved the Citibank-First Book event! It was a huge success and again I just want to say thank you so much! We are very grateful and the students love their books! We look forward to future events together!”

We echo those sentiments and welcome Citi to the long-term work of ensuring every child in the community is afford the best opportunities to reach their greatest potential.
