PLYMOUTH, Minn. (Jan. 16, 2023) TruStone Financial Credit Union, the TruStone Financial Foundation and TruStone Home Mortgage (a division of TruStone Financial) recently donated 1,756 toys and over $3,200 to Toys for Tots. Donations of new, unwrapped toys as well as cash were gathered at the credit union’s 23 branches, administrative center and corporate center in early December.

To deepen the drive’s impact, TruStone Financial and TruStone Home Mortgage employees were encouraged to donate toys or money to Toys for Tots through their December Casual for a Cause day, a program where employees have the opportunity to wear jeans in exchange for a donation to a designated charity. Monetary donations were matched by the TruStone Financial Foundation, making it possible for the credit union to donate over $3,200 in total to Toys for Tots.

Justin Hebner, a United States Marine Corps veteran and Mortgage Closing Specialist at TruStone Home Mortgage, has led the Toys for Tots drive at TruStone for the past nine years. “We look forward to supporting this cause every year,” he said, “And are consistently blown away by the overwhelming support that comes from our community, members, employees and the TruStone Foundation.”
