FNCB presents a $2500 Educational Improvement Tax Credit donation to the Wayne County Public Library. The donation will help fund approved innovative educational programs for K-12 students in the Western Wayne, Wayne Highlands and Wallenpaupack Area schoo   The Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce

Gadsden Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on February 24.

Modern Woodmen of America has unveiled MoneyMasters, a free financial literacy program provided exclusively by the fraternal financial services organization. It aims to help teachers develop financial know-how in students from kindergarten through high school.

Money management is a surprisingly uncommon – but important – skill. Blending in-class and digital lessons with engaging, grade-appropriate examples, the MoneyMasters program helps students feel connected to the material. The program integrates with subjects like mathematics, social studies, economics, technology and business, aligns with Jump$tart Standards and can be customized to fit existing curriculums.

Once the program is completed, classrooms may be eligible to receive funds for a community service capstone project, where students can practice the skills they learned while benefiting a local cause.

Each MoneyMasters program is offered by a local Modern Woodmen financial representative, whose expertise can be a resource for the classroom. Modern Woodmen expects to reach 200,000 students nationally through MoneyMasters each year.

To learn more and order the program for your classroom or youth group, contact Morgan A. Lavender, 256-312-0868, morgan.n.lavender@mwarep.org.

Modern Woodmen was founded in 1883 as a fraternal benefit society. The organization supports members, families and communities with a unique blend of financial services, fraternal benefits and local-impact opportunities. Learn more at www.modernwoodmen.org.
