Gift from the Heart Program
Monday, November 18th - Monday, December 16th

Community State Bank in partnership with Children's Service Society of Wisconsin, and Love Inc., is proud to announce the 10th annual Gift from the Heart Program. The Gift from the Heart program is designed to provide toys and clothing to children in need throughout the local communities.

Jeff Nielsen, Community State Bank AVP Marketing, has managed the program since the beginning. " Times are tough around the holidays for a lot of families in our community. Gift from the Heart allows neighbors and friends in the community to come together and help each other out in a very personal way," Nielsen said. "Every year I am amazed at the overwhelming response we receive from our customers and staff. It is very much appreciated by the families that receive the gifts, and we are proud to be a part of this program."

The Children's Service Society of Wisconsin and Love Inc., will provide the the program names of local children in need this Holiday Season.

Starting Monday, November 18th, customers will be given the chance (at each Community State Bank office location - excluding the Union Grove Motor Bank) to choose an ornament with a name on it from the "Giving Tree". Each ornament will have the child's first name, gender, age, and what he/she needs or would like for Christmas. Customers are asked to purchase a gift for a child and return it to the location where they chose the name by Monday, December 16th. The gift should be UNWRAPPED and returned with the original name tag. Community State Bank's staff will have them ready to be picked up and delivered by Children's Service Society of Wisconsin and Love Inc., about a week before Christmas.
