U.S. Bank Collecting Toys for Tots

U.S. Bank Collecting Toys for Tots

With the holidays nearing, it’s time for the annual U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots campaign. This year U.S. Bank will be helping collect toys in the Minneapolis area, where it’s headquartered.

They are also making it easy for cardholders in the area to help out without buying toys. Every time they pay for anything at all, whether it’s a cup of coffee or a flat screen TV, using Apple Pay and their U.S. Bank debit or credit card at a local retailer they will donate $1 to the campaign, up to $50,000. The campaign runs until December 19.

This is the third year they have worked with the U.S Marine Corps Toys for Tots, but this is the first time they have given their cardholders the ability to contribute via a mobile wallet. This campaign is seen as being a way for cardholders and U.S Bank to get into the holiday spirit and give back.

“Supporting the efforts by the United States Marine Corps to collect toys is one of the highlights of the year for us,” said Christine Hobrough, regional manager the bank. “We know your donations and toys will make the holidays happier and brighter for children and families in our communities.”

Getting started in the Twin Cities

To get started people should be using a mobile app. They then make a purchase using it at local retailers taking part in the initiative. Once they do, a dollar will be donated to U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots campaign every time they make a purchase.

U.S Bank is also adding a special perk for cardholders living in Minnesota, or planning on heading that way. If they go out to buy a toy, or order one online, and then donate it to the U.S Marine Corps Toys for Tots campaign they will receive one children’s pass good for a trip to the Science Museum of Minnesota.

People can get up to four passes, but there are only so many passes to go around so they will be given out on a first come, first served basis. Toys can be dropped off at participating U.S. Bank Twin Cities. For more information on the campaign people can visit the website.
