FORT WASHINGTON, Penn. — TruMark Financial CU has again conducted its Kiss a Pig Financial Literacy fundraiser.
Among those participating was Edward Roth, principal of Norristown High School, who planted a kiss on a pot-bellied pig named Raines. In addition to Norristown High School, 11 other schools participated in the fundraiser and each received a $5,500 grant to use for personal finance resources. Roth said the grant will allow the school to purchase books and software programs which will enrich the existing curriculum.
The fundraiser is a component of TruMark Financial's initiative, Building Financial Futures. Funds raised at this event allow area schools to purchase the tools needed to help teach the value of saving and the importance of managing money responsibly. To date, TruMark Financial has donated more than $300,000 to area schools in need of personal finance resources.
