North Brookfield Savings Bank proudly partners with toy collection programs in North Brookfield, East Brookfield, West Brookfield, Ware, Belchertown, and Palmer to collect toys for local children. North Brookfield Savings Bank Branch Support Specialist Wendy Swallow, Ware Branch Manager Tina Allen along with Supervisor and Marketing Assistant Nicole Syriac are shown with some of the toys donated by generous community members, customers and NBSB employees last year.

 

This November and December, North Brookfield Savings Bank’s goal is to make sure all local children experience the joy of the holidays. Through their Annual Toy Drive held from November 1st through December 15th, donations and toys will be collected at all North Brookfield Savings Bank locations. In addition, North Brookfield Savings Bank will be making a $1,750 donation to local toy drive programs to further brighten the holidays.

During the Toy Drive, community members are welcome to visit any branch location to make their donations of new and unwrapped toys for children between the ages of infant to 12 years old. All toys collected will be donated to local toy programs in each community, to ensure that local children in need will receive holiday presents.

In addition to toys, NBSB will accept financial contributions in collection containers to purchase additional gifts. The bank will match every dollar donated and contribute $1 for every toy collected, up to $250 per branch location.
