Texas Trust donates $5,000 and hundreds of gifts to Toys For Tots

ARLINGTON, TX (December 7, 2017) — At the annual Toys for Tots toy drive here, Texas Trust Credit Union delivered hundreds of toys and a check for $5,000. This is the sixth year Texas Trust has played a key role in the annual toy collection event, held at the Mansfield ISD Center for the Performing Arts.

Texas Trust collected toys at each of its branches and delivered them to the event in its restored 1956 Chevrolet school bus. The credit union also hosted a family zone where children made “magic sparkling food” for Santa’s reindeer. The reindeer food helps direct Santa’s reindeer to a child’s home and provides a snack for the reindeer while Santa delivers presents.

More than a dozen employees from Texas Trust participated in the event. Ron Smith, senior vice president of retail operations, presented the check to Toys for Tots, along with all the toys that were collected. And Cash, the Texas Trust eagle mascot, competed in a race against the mascots of each Mansfield ISD High School.

“It is a joy to help the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve fulfill their mission of bringing hope to less fortunate children,” said Debi Knoblock, assistant vice president business and community engagement for Texas Trust Credit Union. “Toys for Tots brings joy to us as well and gives us an opportunity to fulfill the Christmas wishes of many children.”
