Sometimes the best part of going to the movies is the popcorn! Popcorn Nights are when we team up with theaters around Rhode Island to hand out free popcorn to theatergoers so they can enjoy their movies just a little bit more.
It’s difficult to make Fridays better but free lunch helps! For Free Lunch Fridays, one of our branches partner with a local restaurant to provide a free sandwich, salad and drinks for all branch customers who visit that day.
Everyone loves their daily coffee or tea in the morning; it gets us moving to work, school or anywhere we need to go. For Coffee on Us, a BankNewport employee goes to a local coffee shop and prepays for the next few hours of customers’ drinks. That way, people in our communities can enjoy their daily routine a little easier.
Winters in New England do have their advantages… like a day at the local ice rink. Over the winter, BankNewport threw a few Free Skate Days all over Rhode Island where visitors could skate for free!
Bus riders are used to the routine: wait for their bus, board, pay their fare, and then arrive at their destination. This year, BankNewport partnered with the Rhode Island Public Transit Authority to spice up their daily commute by providing free bus rides in Providence. BankNewport Day is a fun way to make commuting just a little bit easier for everyone.
We couldn’t have done it without you!
