Tompkins Mahopac Bank Announces Second Round of Community Minute

Contest to Begin August 17; $2,000 Awarded to One Local Non-Profit

Brewster, NY, August 3, 2016 – Proving that a minute can matter, Tompkins Mahopac Bank is kicking-off its second Community Minute Challenge, a contest that invites participants to vote on the bank’s Facebook page and rewards one local not-for-profit with $2,000 in much-needed funds.

From August 17 through August 31, the public is invited to watch one-minute videos produced by participating non-profits in Dutchess, Putnam and Westchester counties, and then vote on their favorite. Each video explains how the non-profit will use the awarded funds.

“Our first Community Minute Challenge was a great success,” said Jerry Klein, president and CEO of Tompkins Mahopac Bank. “With community support and participation, we were able to provide funding to an outstanding organization. We are thrilled to assist another non-profit right here in the Hudson Valley and proud that this program will collectively gift $6,000 to worthy organizations.”

Competing in this round are: Astor Family Services for Children & Families, Oral Cancer Awareness Foundation, Community Cares, Drug Crisis in our Backyard, Port Chester Carver Center, and Gullotta House. To show support, participants should “like” Tompkins Mahopac Bank’s Facebook page (, click on the Community Minute Challenge app and then select their favorite non-profit. Each individual can vote once per day.

The first Community Minute Challenge benefitted Sparrow’s Nest, a Wappingers Falls-based non-profit that provides meals to families of caregivers diagnosed with cancer. A third round of this contest will launch in October 2016 with details posted to Tompkins Mahopac Bank’s Facebook page.
