The holiday season is a time to give back and Howard Bank is proud to serve as a Toy Drop Site Location for the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots campaign again this year. The mission of the Toys for Tots program is to collect and distribute new toys as Christmas gifts to children in need in the community.
For more than six decades, the U.S. Marine Corps has distributed over 452 million toys to more than 209 million children. The program doesn’t just deliver toys, it delivers hope. In 2018, the Baltimore community supported 14,462 children with 32,157 toys distributed. This year, SSgt Johnathan Bowman will be coordinating Baltimore City, Baltimore County, and Howard County.
You can help bring toys and hope to the children of the community by dropping off a new, unwrapped toy to one of our branches from Monday, November 4th to Friday, December 6th.
Toys for Tots has volunteer opportunities too! Consider giving back by helping to sort toys in the warehouse, assist with collection and/or delivery, or organizing by zip codes.
