Second grade students from Fremont Christian School District in Fremont, Mich., show off their new books. John Buckley, president/CEO of the $194.6 million, Fremont-based Gerber Federal Credit Union, recently read the book “Give It!” by Cinders McLeod in a video sent to second grade teachers across the county. The book introduces simple money concepts, and features an enthusiastic young bunny who discovers how good it feels to use his allowance to help others. Gerber recorded the video in lieu of its usual in-person events due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to distributing the video, Gerber provided every student, their teacher and their school library with a copy of the book with assistance from the Michigan Credit Union Foundation. A total of 600 books were donated to the following school districts: Big Jackson, Fremont, Fremont Christian, Grant, Grant Christian, Hesperia, Holton, Newaygo and White Cloud. Gerber FCU
