An Early Father’s Day Winner’s Story

“During the Coronavirus Pandemic, Fund My Future has been a blessing to both me and my daughter. I can’t believe something as simple as saving, would make such huge a difference in our lives.” 
Mr. Tarue Weathers

Meet Mr. Tarue Weathers, one of our April $50 winners. Mr. Weathers is the proud father of 11-year old Meya. Mr. Weathers was introduced to Fund My Future at a community event earlier this year. After Ms. Toni Crinealdi’s presentation on FMF, Mr. Weathers was excited about the program, and he scheduled an appointment at First Commonwealth Bank to open an account for his daughter. Mr. Weathers said opening the account made him feel good that he was able to plan for his daughter’s future. Every month Mr. Weather deposits at least $20 into Meya’s account. The next time a deposit is made, he said he plans to have Meya conduct the transaction so that she becomes familiar with banking procedures.
