Security Service Charitable Foundation donation to help teach financial literacy skills to area school children

SAN ANTONIO, TX (April 5, 2016) — Security Service Charitable Foundation is pleased to announce a $10,000 donation that will bring Junior Achievement’s financial literacy program to nearly 700 students at David Gourley Elementary School in Salt Lake City.

 The multi-week program will include lessons in personal finance, budgeting and career opportunities. Many of the classes will be taught by employees of Security Service, which has been a long-time partner of Junior Achievement.

 “Financial literacy is an important skill that children today must have to set them on the path to success as they grow up,” said Greg Reed, senior vice president of member service for Security Service and board member for Junior Achievement of Utah. “Many of the children at Gourley come from low income homes that may need some help providing a good understanding of finances for their families.  We are honored to be able to make this program and its resources available to them.”

 Gourley Elementary School officials say as a Title I school, finding the funding for the Junior Achievement program would have proved daunting. The donation will help ensure their students develop a strong foundation about how money works and how, if managed well, it can provide them with stability and new opportunities in the future.

 “We want all of our children to dream big and reach their full potential, no matter what their economic situation is today,” said Christy Tribe, president of Junior Achievement of Utah. “We are grateful to Security Service for its commitment to our children and ensuring that they have the necessary skills to best prepare them for the future.”
