Guaranty Bank is unleashing the festive spirit again with our 13th Annual Holiday Toy Drive, which will run from December 1st through the 15th!
Our toy drive started 13 years ago when Guaranty Bank partnered with a local radio station hosting a toy drive for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. We’re talking gifts galore in 2010, and since then, our toy drive has evolved into this epic extravaganza involving the entire Guaranty Bank team. This program has become a favorite for employees and customers, and we look forward to its success again this year.
