All About Nickels
Hi! I’m Nickels, BankFive's mascot. I was born in Fall River on Teach Children to Save Day and I think saving money is cool. I love to help kids learn about saving money.
You’ll see me walking in parades and visiting schools with my BankFive friends – who also love to see kids save. They even named the kids savings account after me. How awesome is that? With the Nickels Savings Account, kids can watch their money grow in their own passbook, where their money is safe. I even reward them for saving by giving them a toy dog of me when they open a brand new Nickels Savings Account.
I send my Nickels Savings Account friends birthday cards on their special day and offer money tips to help them learn about money. I want all the kids in the area to learn how to save their money!
Below are links to some cool activities and things to do for my friends!
