Waldorf, Maryland, November 28, 2012 - Community Bank of Tri-County is excited to be hosting the 2nd Annual Holiday Food and Toy Drive. Last year, with the help of community members and employees, over 800 pounds of food and truck loads of toys were donated and distributed locally. Through December 13, 2012, Community Bank of Tri-County is seeking the help of the community to collect even more food and toys for this year's drive.
"At Community Bank of Tri-County giving back to the communities where we live and work is part of our mission," said Jim Di Misa, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Community Bank of Tri-County. "Particularly during the holiday season, our customers and employees really come together to support the members of our community who need it most. The results of our food and toy drive last year were phenomenal; I’m excited to see success again this year!"
Each year, Community Bank of Tri-County collects non-perishable food items and new, unwrapped toys that are then distributed out into the community. This year, food collections in Southern Maryland will be donated to the Southern Maryland Food Bank and collections in King George County will be donated to the Department of Social Services for the King George Food Pantry. Toys collected in Calvert, King George and St. Mary's Counties will support the Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program and toys collected in Charles County will benefit the Children's Aid Society, Inc.
Anyone wishing to help make a difference in the life of a child or family in our community by making a donation is invited to stop by any Community Bank of Tri-County branch. For more information regarding the drive, or how you can help support our community, please contact Erin Brown at 240-427-1048 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
