The news release said residents can participate in the toy drive by completing four steps:

  1. Walk up to the holiday tree at Union Bank located at 330 Tres Pinos Road in Hollister. 
  2. Select a paper ornament with a child’s name and age. Take the paper ornament with you.
  3. Purchase a toy from your favorite local store and tie the paper ornament to the gift.
  4. Bring the gift back, with the paper ornament, to Union Bank and place it under the Holiday tree. 

The release said the relationship between Union Bank and San Benito LULAC dates back several years and that since 1993, San Benito LULAC volunteers have distributed thousands of toys to local children in need.
