Gift of Love program wraps-up with Truck of Love

Posted: Updated:

People from across KOTA Territory show their generosity this holiday season by filling a truck with toys for the underprivileged.

First State Bank wraps–up their 32nd annual Gift of Love program this weekend with the Truck of Love campaign.

For past month–and–a–half, community members have been helping fill a Nebraska Transit truck with toys for underprivileged children.

In addition, the campaign collects new and used coats for local charities, monetary donations and non–perishable food items.

First State Bank Marketing Director Becca Tompkins says this year's campaign has been very successful.

"We had 326 kids on our tree, which last year we had 319 and actually this year we had all but six of our names taken so that is great," says Tompkins.  "There are always a few names that are left on the tree."

Tompkins says the monetary donations go–toward purchasing gifts for the children who are left on the tree.
