CFO Jimmy Patronis’ Division of Consumer Services Donates 1,000 Financial Literacy Books for Kids

4/20/2018

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.— Florida's Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis announced today the donation of 1,000 copies of “Sammie Learns to Earn,” a financial literacy book developed by the CFO’s Division of Consumer Services, to the Early Learning Coalition of the Big Bend in honor of Teach Children to Save Day on April 20. Teach Children to Save Day introduces children to smart money management and prepares them for major financial decisions ahead. 
 
“A Federal Reserve report found that kids exposed to financial education ended up with higher credit scores than those who were not,” said CFO Jimmy Patronis. “It’s never too early to start having discussions about the importance of finances with our children. We will continue to find ways to partner with similar organizations and local school districts to further educate our children about the importance of finances.”
 
The “Sammie Learns to Earn” book shares the adventure of Sammie, the Savings Scottie, and teaches children how to save and budget their money in a fun and exciting way. For organizations wanting to partner with CFO Patronis' financial literacy initiative, please contact CFO.Patronis@myfloridacfo.com.
