Grace Place students tour Iberiabank

Iberiabank hosted 40 Grace Place middle school summer STEM Camp students for a bank tour on Monday, June 17.

Held at Iberiabank’s Naples headquarters at 2150 Goodlette Road North, students were exposed to much more than just dollars and cents. Professionals from Iberiabank shared the fundamentals of how a bank operates, career opportunities available within a bank, current financial industry issues such as identity theft and more. The children also had the opportunity to tour the branch vault and safety deposit box area, view how checks are processed in the bank’s lockbox department, and experience how a teller line operates.

Beginning July 1, Iberiabank will launch the “i Gives Back” school supply drive to benefit students of Grace Place. School supplies may be dropped off at any Iberiabank location in Collier County.

Founded in 2004, Grace Place for Children and Families is a faith-based nonprofit neighborhood center breaking the cycle of poverty by teaching literacy, language and life skills to children and families at-risk in Golden Gate City. More than 800 students are enrolled in Grace Place’s three educational programs: Bright Beginnings, Student Programs and Adult English Language and Literacy.
