This is a special time of year, and we’re mindful that many of our neighbors are in need of assistance. In New York, New Jersey and Chicago, our branches are asking for your help.
Throughout this week, each branch in New York and New Jersey will be collecting new, unwrapped toys for children that might not otherwise enjoy the holiday season. Those branches will also be accepting gently used coats during our 2012 Coat Drive. Please consider making a donation at one of our branches this week.
Our branches in the Chicagoland area are also collecting new, unwrapped toys. This year, the collected toys will be donated to the Chicago Commons Taylor Center for New Experiences. Look for the wrapped boxes in each of our branches during the next couple weeks.
We have a few financial education offerings this week as well. Please consider adding these to your calendar:
