We’re celebrating our youth the week of April 15-18. This year’s theme is “The future is yours.. Picture it! Save for it! Share it!”   

Open a Savings Account for your child

Give your child or grandchild the lifelong power of having their own savings account. Visit us to open an account. Kids 0-12 will be enrolled in our Kirby Kangaroo Club. For every $5 saved, they will earn a Kirby Buck that can be redeemed for cool rewards. Learn more.

Earn Prizes

Children earn a treat bag when they visit a branch. When they save $25 or more during Youth Week, they will receive a t-Shirt.1

Savers Love The Coin Counting Machine

Bring piggy banks to the coin counter at the Lafayette Branch. It’s fun to watch the coins disappear into the machine and learn how much you saved!
