Our annual 911 Gives Hope for the Holidays Toy Drive is coming up at the beginning of December at the east side Walmart in Evansville, and our friends at United Fidelity Bank are hoping you'll help for the low, low price of just $1.00

Annual 911 Gives Hope for the Holidays Toy Drive Scheduled for December 1-3

It's hard to believe, but this year's 911 Gives Hope for the Holidays Toy Drive will be our 15th. And just like that very first year, the goal this year will be to fill another 53-foot trailer full of toys that will be turned over to the following area hospitals for kids spending the holidays in those facilities battling a variety of illnesses.

United Fidelity Bank Santa Hat Fundraiser

We certainly understand there may be some people who want to help fill the trailer but can't make it to the east side Walmart that weekend to drop off a toy. That's where United Fidelity comes in. For the past several years, they have been an incredible partner during the event by selling paper Santa hats at each of their eight banking centers around the Tri-State. All you have to do is stop by any one of them during regular business hours. Since the drive is a partnership with local first responder charity, 911 Gives Hope, the hats are available in either blue or red (blue = law enforcement, red = fire and emergency medical). Pick whichever one you want for $1.00 each (or buy several) and at the end of the month, United Fidelity will take all the money raised from the purchase of the hats and use it to buy additional toys to help fill the trailer.
