Tomorrow morning, John Deere Financial will host a Breakfast with Books event at Findley Elementary School from 7:45 to 9:15 a.m. The event is part of the company's Financial Services Roundtable Community Service 2012 series.
During the event, parents, teachers, students and company volunteers will eat breakfast while reading books that focus on financial literacy. John Deere Financial is donating one book per student, providing 280 scholastic books that focus on financial literacy for kindergarten through fifth-graders.
In addition to the breakfast, John Deere Financial will continue to sponsor Findley Elementary's reading incentive program. Each student is encouraged to read 20 books; students that succeed receive a T-shirt and a pizza party hosted by John Deere Financial.
