Spencer Savings Bank, a community bank headquartered in Elmwood Park, N.J., held its annual Holiday Toy Drive for the 2015 holiday season, collecting toys at its corporate headquarters and branch offices across Bergen, Essex, Passaic, Union and Mercer counties through the month of December.
A team of Spencer employees visited two locations on December 22nd to distribute to distribute the toys in person: the New Jersey Community Development Corporation in Paterson, N.J., and the Children’s Specialized Hospital in Mountainside, N.J. Accompanying were “Spencer Santa” and his elves, who helped spread the holiday cheer.
“Hosting our Holiday Toy Drive has become one of Spencer Savings Bank’s favorite traditions,” said José B. Guerrero, Chairman, President and CEO of the bank. “We are extremely proud of our warmhearted staff, and sincerely thank everyone in the community who donated toys. The holiday season is particularly challenging for local children and families in need, but by coming together and giving back, we were once again able to truly make a difference.”
