Randolph Savings Bank Announces 1000 Likes Campaign

September 3, 2014

We were thrilled to join the world of social media this summer as we launched our Facebook and Twitter pages for Randolph Savings Bank – but while social media is fantastic, we wouldn’t be Randolph Savings Bank if we didn’t add a little #RandolphAOK to the mix.

What’s #RandolphAOK?

Randolph Acts of Kindness represents the ways we reach out to our neighbors – with efforts large and small we seek to make an impact in our community, not just in the way we bank, but in the way we live.

When we get 1,000 likes on Facebook, we’ll gift one of these amazing local organizations with $1,000. All five of these non-profit organizations make a positive impact on the lives of individuals and families in our communities – and they’re so amazing, we’d like you to take a moment to read about each one. After that, Like our page and then head on over to our poll to vote for the organization you’d like to support with that donation. The organization with the most votes at the time we reach 1,000 likes will receive the donation.
