Reading Makes Cent$
“Bankers are a lot more than just numbers.”
— Chris Oddleifson, President and CEO of Rockland Trust
Reading Makes Cent$ is our bank-wide summer reading program that encourages children to read during the summer, while learning the value of saving through the opening of a savings account.
Children read their favorite books all summer and receive $2.50 in a Rockland Trust savings account for each book read (up to 10 books). Kids earn credit by handing in their reading journals with completed summer reading to a Rockland Trust branch.
This year, we had nearly 1,500 students participate, reading more than 13,000 books! Great job!
