Salisbury Bank will kick off its 25th annual "We Believe" toy drive, Friday November 26, 2010. The goal of the program is to enrich the lives of local children during the holidays.
The public is invited to place a new, unwrapped gift of a toy, book, or game suitable for a girl or boy, from birth up through mid-teens, beneath the decorated tree at any one of our eight branch locations until December 15, 2010.
"In the past, toys that were donated brought smiles to children from all over the tri-state region, during the holidays. We hope you will help in this effort to bring joy to a local child this holiday season" stated Michael Dixon Executive Vice President of Salisbury Bank.
To jump start the program, a group of staff members have volunteered to shop for gifts, with $1000.00 that the Bank has provided as a donation. Bank staff members will also ensure a Christmas delivery to homes of children in need throughout the communities served by the Bank.
