A fundraiser at James W. Parker Middle School gave the Life Skills and Autistic Support students the opportunity to visit an Edinboro bank on Feb. 13.

The classes sold Lancer Grams for $1 each throughout the middle school to spread love and raise funds for the Life Skills and Autistic Support programs. On Feb. 13, they were able to deposit the money at Northwest Savings Bank in Edinboro.

The tellers at the bank shared how to count, deposit and exchange the money they raised, explained Zachary Lucas, autistic support teacher at the middle school.

“While visiting the bank the employees gave the students a great overview of their daily duties, as well as allowed the students to tour the bank,” Lucas wrote. 

“Tellers Ms. Callison, Mrs. Mamula, Mrs. Rohrer, Mrs. Liebel and Ms. Orr explained to the students how the money they raised is deposited and exchanged for larger bills, while Mr. Terrill took the students to the bank’s vault and showcased how the money is kept safe.”

Lucas said he wanted to share his thanks with Northwest Savings Bank for providing General McLane students with the opportunity to learn about the bank and what the community has to offer.
