St. Nicks Alliance school sites were inspired by Dime Community Bank’s naming sponsorship of the Dime McCarren 5K fundraiser to collect dimes (or greater). They named this effort “Give A Dime”.  PS 34 and MS 126 collected the most coins, and to honor this Dime Community Bank presented St. Nicks Alliance with a matching donation of $1000 in front of their newly opened kiosk branch at 214 Bedford Avenue.

Proceeds from the Dime McCarren 5K go to support after school and summer camp. The race is May 6th at 10 a.m. starting and finishing at McCarren Park’s Ericsson Playground  For more information and to participate in the Dime McCarren 5K: m5k.org
