Dime Community Bank — an institution founded in 1864 in Williamsburg that has dug its roots even deeper in the borough ever since — is giving back this holiday season by asking, “What are you thankful for?”
Dime — which opened a brand new branch in Park Slope and another in Williamsburg earlier this year — is very grateful for its customers and for the ability to serve its local communities for over 150 years. To show that, the local institution has launched the #DimeGivesBank initiative, which supports the deserving charities in its customers’ neighborhoods.
Here’s how it works. Snap a quick selfie or record a quick video either saying or holding up a sign that explains what you’re thankful for this year, be it your health, your loved ones, your job — anything, really.
From there, post it to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #DimeGivesBack, and Dime will make a financial donation ($10 per picture, $15 per video) to a charity of your choice. Just designate it in the caption! (And be sure to make your viewing settings for the snapshot public!)
