News: Toys-for-Tots 2023

Spread the Cheer & Give This Year!

This holiday season, we're once again partnering with UPVETS to collect donations for Toys for Tots. Starting Monday, October 30 through Thursday, December 7th, drop off your new, unwrapped toys at any of our 9  locations throughout the Greater Houston area.

UPVETS will also gladly accept monetary donations to be used to purchase toys. 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. All donations will be recognized with an ornament on our tree!

During the holiday season, thousands of families in our community rely on Toys for Tots to provide presents for their children. This need has only grown due to the effects of COVID-19. It's our goal to ensure that children in our community still get to experience the joys of the holidays this year. 

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. The best news - all the UPVETS donations stay in the Greater Houston area.

Stop by a branch to donate today!
