Frandsen Bank & Trust is pleased to announce a limited initiative that allows their Young Adult customers to benefit United Heroes League this summer.
“This is a win-win partnership,” said Karen Brekke, chairman of the board of FB&T, in a press release. “We want to benefit the young adults in our communities and at the same time support a great cause.”
“FB&T understands the financial challenges that young adults face once they start earning a paycheck, plan for post-high school education, or move out on their own,” Brekke said. “We want them to be ready to face these challenges and have a high personal finance IQ. In short, we want to guide them down a successful financial path as early as possible.”
Every year from May through July, FB&T features an initiative to help teens and young adults get started on the road to financial independence. This year the theme is “Be a Hero.” For each new My Checking account opened by a young adult age 15–23, the bank donates $10 to the United Heroes League. The donation will help the child of a deployed military family stay active in a sport he or she likes, and the new account will help a young adult become financially responsible and increase their personal finance IQ. The initiative ends on July 31.
During the initiative, the Jordan office will be a collection site for the United Heroes League. Area residents are encouraged to drop off any new and gently used sports equipment donations at the bank. The United Heroes League will then distribute this equipment to military kids so they can participate in their favorite sports. They are looking for hockey, baseball, basketball, football, golf, soccer, lacrosse, tennis, and fishing equipment. Please direct any questions to the bank.
Frandsen’s partner in this initiative, United Heroes League, is a non-profit organization based in Hastings. They keep military kids active and healthy while their parents serve our country by providing sports equipment, sports camps, and other grants. So far they have helped over 40,000 military families keep or start their kids in sports.
The mission of United Heroes League is to ensure that all 5 million military kids are able to develop critical life skills through sports. This intense focus on youth development and serving the families of our military service members has inspired over 90 professional athletes and over 30 sports franchises to lend their name and support to United Heroes League.
