First Financial Bank associates teamed up with residents in Indiana, Illinois, Ohio and Kentucky to collect over 4,000 books.

All First Financial locations in Northwest Indiana participated in the book drive, along with locations in the bank’s four-state service area. The bank will donate the books to schools, libraries and other local community organizations.

“We appreciate the incredible turnout from community members who pitched in to help with this book drive, because our combined effort will have a positive impact on financial literacy for years to come in the people who receive these volumes,” said Roddell McCullough, First Financial chief corporate responsibility officer, in a press release.

The book drive ran from May 6 through 24. During the two-week period, bank associates distributed a list of books and articles to foster financial literacy in multiple age groups. Titles included “A Bike Like Sergio’s” for elementary students, “O.M.G.: Official Money Guide for Teenagers” for high school students and “The Art of Money: A Life-Changing Guide to Financial Happiness” for adults. The list will continue to be available at First Financial locations.
