Associated Bank recently donated $2,000 worth of much-needed toys to this year’s Salvation Army of Brown County toy shop.

“Associated Bank supports the Salvation Army of Brown County and their many wonderful programs that support our community,” said Judy Docter, executive vice president, chief human resources officer, Associated Bank. “We are happy to step up and provide additional funds to ensure there are plenty of toys for the gift assistance program – and to make sure that no child goes without this holiday season.”

“We cannot thank Associated enough for their outpouring of support this year,” states Captain Ken Shiels, County Coordinator for The Salvation Army of Brown County. “This donation has come when we needed it most and will ensure children in need have a toy under their tree for Christmas.”

When Associated Bank reached out to Shopko, to see if they could shop there, Shopko also stepped up, pitching in $1,000 from the Shopko Foundation to purchase toys as well. These toys were part of The Salvation Army of Brown County’s Christmas Assistance Distribution that took place last week.
