BOSTON, MA (November 6, 2023) – Brookline Bank announced today that it is once again teaming up with Marine Toys for Tots this holiday season. The public is invited to donate new unwrapped toys at any Brookline Bank location during regular business hours. The campaign will run from Monday, November 6th through Friday, December 8th.

“We are delighted to offer our banking offices as drop-sites for the Marine Toys for Tots,” said Darryl Fess, President and CEO of Brookline Bank. “The profound impact of this effort is truly heartwarming, and we are privileged to play our part in making a difference during the holidays.”

Toys collected at Brookline Bank locations will be distributed to children in need in Essex, Middlesex, Norfolk, and Suffolk counties.

Last year, Brookline Bank collected more than 2,800 toys for children through the Marine Toys for Tots campaign.

Now in their 76th year, Marine Toys for Tots, through the gift of a new toy, helps bring joy to the holidays and sends a message of hope to less fortunate children. Thanks to the public’s generosity, the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve has distributed over 652 million toys to more than 291 million children.
