BOSTON, MA, December 19, 2023 – Brookline Bank announced today that 2,850 toys have been collected for Marine Toys for Tots across its 29 banking offices in the Greater Boston area.

“We really appreciate the kindness of our clients, staff, and local communities in helping to make this toy drive a huge success,” said Darryl Fess, President and CEO of Brookline Bank. “These toys will brighten the holidays for many underprivileged children throughout the region.”

The toy drive, which ran from November 6th to December 8th, encouraged donations of new unwrapped toys at any Brookline Bank location. The toys will be distributed to children in need in Essex, Middlesex, Norfolk, and Suffolk counties.
