Dime Bank Joins with Local Schools as Part of America Saves Week

Promoting automatic savings to help people reach their savings goals
Norwich, CT – As part of America Saves Week 2016, scheduled for February 22 – 27, 2016 Dime Bank is spreading the saving message and urging its network to encourage people to make savings automatic as part of America Saves Week. Dime is offering financial workshops at Jack Jackter Intermediate School in Colchester, CT, along with events at Mitchell College and Three Rivers Community College, located in New London, CT.
In response to the increasingly complex world of financial management, Dime Bank established Dime Academy-a community education initiative designed to empower individuals and enterprises in managing their financial future. In an effort to promote financial responsibility, Dime has partnered with the FDIC and American Bankers Association Teach Children To Save national campaign to support financial literary.
As part of the campaign, Dime Bank is dedicated to reaching out to schools and organizations to offer financial education. For more information on Dime Academy and the promotion of financial literary to children and adults, email dimeacademy@dime-bank.com.
