Make a Child Smile This Holiday Season

Make a Child Smile This Holiday Season!

Texas Bay is once again teaming up with UPVETS this holiday season to bring smiles to Houston area kids on Christmas Day! Now through December 8th, we will be collecting unwrapped toys and monetary donations at all of our 9 branches

The past two years have left many families in our communities devastated, and we want to help parents provide a Christmas miracle to their children. Every child deserves to have the joys of this holiday season!

Conditions of Toys We Accept: 

  • Toys for Children Aged 12 and Under
  • Toys must be New and Unwrapped
  • Homemade toys are acceptable 
  • Books are acceptable as well

UPVETS will also gladly accept monetary donations as well. To make a monetary donation, advise your branch teller that you would like to make a "Charitable Donation to Toys for Tots", and they can assist you. 

UPVETS is a non-profit organization and employee resource group for veterans operating out of the Union Pacific Railroad. As a veteran organization, UPVETS decided the Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots was an excellent opportunity to give back to the community. Join us this year to reach our goal of donating 7,000 toys!

Come by a branch to donate today!
