Toys collected at the New Richmond, Osceola, Somerset and Star Prairie AnchorBank branches will be donated to Secret Santa Love Baskets, Polk County Operation Christmas and Toys for Tots.

"This is a great way to get involved with the community and work together to make a difference," said regional manager Paula Kolbeck. "It's a great tradition that we will continue for years to come."
