TopLine Federal Credit Union is celebrating the 17th year of its Holiday Toy Drive.

The public is able to stop by any TopLine location through December 21 to place a new, unwrapped gift under the holiday tree to benefit Community Emergency Assistance Programs (CEAP), Keystone Community Services and the Toys for Tots Foundation.

People making donations can take an ornament from the tree as our way of saving thank you for your generosity.

TopLine wishes everyone a happy holiday in 2015!

TopLine would like to thank Cheryl, a member of our Como Park branch.

For the last decade, Cheryl has hand-made nearly 300 stuffed animals, which she has graciously donated to our toy drive.

Here is Cheryl in front of of the holiday tree in Como Park.
