Dime Bank donates to The Cooperage Project
HONESDALE, PA — The Dime Bank has donated $6,000 to The Cooperage Project, which includes a $1,000 Gold Sponsorship and $5,000 to support The Cooperage’s Romping Radishes program, a series of healthy-living classes for kids. Romping Radishes at The Cooperage is part of the Earned Income Tax Credit program that it conducts as an Educational Improvement Organization. A variety of hands-on and interactive activities are intended to challenge young people to think about the importance of maintaining a healthy diet and an active lifestyle. All parts of being well, including physical, mental and emotional wellness, are discussed in the classes.
The next Romping Radishes will be held on Saturday, December 10 at 11 a.m., upstairs during the Main Street Farmers’ Market. This month’s topic is “Healthy Holidays!” (see page 20).
Via a press release, The Dime Bank said it believes a solid community is built upon strong relationships, and The Dime Bank is excited to support The Cooperage Project, a not-for-profit organization based in Honesdale, which continues to provide multiple community gatherings, learning opportunities, a farmers’ market, and space for dozens of events and performances year-round.
