RALEIGH — For the third consecutive year, AgCarolina Farm Credit announces a donation of toys from members and employees for local needy children.

Over 780 toys were collected in the toy collection drive.

The Toys for Tots campaign began in September in conjunction with customer appreciation events held at AgCarolina Farm Credit’s 12 branches in eastern North Carolina. Members and employees were also able to purchase raffle tickets for a rocking bench donated by a member of the Rocky Mount branch. The raffle generated over $1,300 with all funds going to purchase toys for the toy drive.

AgCarolina’s Rocky Mount branch was the host of a celebration of the efforts of customers and employees last Tuesday. Representatives of Toys for Tots and each of AgCarolina’s branches were on site for the reception. All toy donations will benefit local North Carolina children.

“The Toys for Tots campaign is an opportunity for AgCarolina to impact the communities we serve during the holiday season,” said AgCarolina President and CEO Dave Corum. “Our members and employees continue to come together in support of needy children in eastern North Carolina. The day of our Toys for Tots celebration has become one of my favorite days throughout the year. We thank all of our members and employees for their efforts in the Toys for Tots campaign.”
