The Annual Toy Drive, which NBSB has hosted for many years, was once again a huge success, bringing hope and joy to those who needed it most during the holiday season. Due to the overwhelming generosity of community members, customers, and North Brookfield Savings Bank employees, the Toy Drive collected hundreds of toys and monetary donations, which were distributed to local toy drive organizations in each of the Bank’s branch communities. In addition, North Brookfield Savings Bank donated $1,750 to local toy collection programs. All the toys collected and other toys purchased with the Bank’s donation ensured that local children of struggling families received holiday gifts.

For the Toy Drive, the Bank accepted monetary donations and donations of new and unwrapped toys for children at most of its branch locations. This year’s contributions included several exceptional items such as bicycles, skateboards, sleds, winter coats, slime kits, oversized stuffed animals, among many other various trucks, cars, baby dolls, science kits, board games, crafts, and toys.

“We were so thrilled to be able once again to hold our annual toy drive within our branch locations. Although safety measures regarding the COVID-19 pandemic did make for a difficult couple of years, the generosity shown by our communities was unwavering,” said North Brookfield Savings Bank President Marco Bernasconi Jr. “It is apparent that everyone in our neighborhoods and at North Brookfield Savings Bank has a strong sense of community commitment, even in the toughest of times. We thank you all for being so charitable again in 2021.”

North Brookfield Savings Bank proudly partnered with the North Brookfield Police Association’s Toys for Joy Program, East Brookfield Toys for Joy Program, West Brookfield Police Association’s Holiday Toy Program, Ware Police Department’s “Christmas for Kids” Program, Belchertown Firefighters Association Adopt-a-Family Program and Palmer Lions Club Holiday Toy Program to offer support to the communities they serve.
