Twenty-one volunteers from Bank of America were joined by 275 children at the Boys & Girls Club of Capistrano Valley on Friday, November 16, to take part in United Way’s “Day of Caring” event.

The volunteers taught the children about fiscal responsibility through simple lessons in financial literacy and also took in a few rounds of dodgeball and other games.

Friday’s event caps a month-long effort by Bank of America volunteers and United Way in Orange County. In recent weeks, volunteers have also assembled backpacks filled with food and snacks for needy children and helped prepare the Thomas House Shelter in Garden Grove for the holiday season.
