Toms River's branch of The Provident Bank hopes to help brighten the holidays for children in need by collecting through Dec. 17.
New, unwrapped toys for children of all ages will be accepted for Toys for Tots at the bank's 961 Fischer Boulevard location. Donations, which are especially needed in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, can be dropped off in the building lobby during regular business hours, according to the bank.
"The recent hurricane has devastated and displaced many families in the Toms River area, so there are even more children in need this holiday season," said Vice President of Public Relations Jean Quinn in a statement. "Provident is committed to giving back to the communities it serves, and we look forward to brightening the holidays for local children with these new toys."
