Come visit the Angel Tree at Bank of the Islands

By Staff | Dec 4, 2009

Bank of the Islands is asking their customers and island neighbors to contribute unwrapped Christmas gifts for needy children in our community.

All islanders are invited to choose an ornament from the Angel Tree in our bank lobby. Each ornament will indicate the age of a boy or girl hoping to receive a gift this holiday season.

“We’re so happy to be partnering again with Friends Who Care on this special holiday gift drive,” said Bank of the Islands Vice President/Office Manager Rob Lisenbee. “Pat Van Alstyne, a retired bank staffer, brought this effort to our attention years ago. We are honored to be a part of this wonderful island tradition.”

The deadline to choose an ornament and deliver an unwrapped gift to the Bank of the Islands lobby is Wednesday, Dec. 16.

“Friends Who Care has been quietly helping neighbors in need for 27 years,” said Van Alstyne. “Any grownup elves interested in helping us wrap presents on Thursday, Dec. 17 are invited to call 472-5152.”

As always, the bank’s freshly baked cookies and coffee will be available for visitors and customers. Bank of the Islands is located on the corner of Periwinkle Way and Casa Ybel Road.
