“To be successful, you have to have your heart in your business, and your business in your heart.” – Sr. Thomas Watson
That time of the year is once again upon us; the annual November tradition of giving thanks to the people who have helped contribute to America’s proud history of freedom and greatness. They are the men and women who bravely set out on dangerous and unchartered waters in search of a better life.
They are small business owners.
And they sure have given us a lot to be thankful about. Small businesses have always been and continue to be, the fuel that powers our local neighborhoods, creating jobs, home buying opportunities, and a better life for us all.
Moved to help businesses prosper.
To give them the boost they deserve during the holiday shopping season and enhance our ongoing advocacy and support of small businesses, on November 29, DNB First will proudly participate in a national movement known as Small Business Saturday.®
The annual event, which was founded in 2010 by American Express,® encourages people and organizations to rally to promote the benefits of shopping with local businesses.
Join us to give back to businesses – and to those in need.
For its part in Small Business Saturday, DNB First has partnered with the West Chester Chamber of Commerce to host an Open House to encourage local people to come out and shop at local businesses during the busiest shopping season of the year. The Bank will host an open house at its West Chester branch, which will include food and refreshments, basket giveaways, and much more. The Kennett Square branch will also feature a sweepstakes to earn a $100 deposit in a new DNB First Checking account.
At the Open House, local families will also have an opportunity to help the less fortunate as DNB First will host the kettle kickoff for The Salvation Army. The Salvation Army’s kettle program was conceived more than 123 years ago when Salvation Army Captain Joseph McFee placed an iron kettle to help raise money to feed the poverty-stricken people of San Francisco during the holidays. Today, the kettle program helps feed more than four-and-a-half million people in the United States during the holiday season – and has provided more than 2 million meals and 370,000 nights of shelter here at home in Pennsylvania.
