Penny for their thoughts…

They spend much of their time assisting in the needs of others, donating their services, and just generally making the world a better place, and so it should come as no surprise that their awareness of and approach to money is well beyond their years.

Already no secret to them that a penny saved is a penny earned, members of Holy Family School's Acts of Random Kindness service group recently spent an afternoon in the company of Jim Sebastian and Beth Valerio of the Poland branch of Home Saving and Loan, who spoke to them about saving, spending, and the importance of budgeting.

Surprising their visitors with forward thinking answers such as education and retirement to the question "What are some of the things it's important to save for," it was clear that the third through seventh-graders were already thinking outside the piggy bank.

Yes, for those young girls who delight in the simplicity of performing Acts of Random Kindness, it was obvious that the buck stops here.
