Help Fill a Stocking for a Child This Holiday Season

NWSB Bank Collects Holiday Stockings for Children

Posted on Nov 02, 2020

Join NWSB Bank in supporting The Shepherd’s Staff and Carroll County children in need by donating fun and useful items this holiday season. This special NWSB Helping Hands initiative runs through Tuesday, December 1. 

Customers and local residents may bring one or more items listed below to any of NWSB Bank’s seven convenient locations in Carroll County, MD. Place your items in the large stocking on display in the office. NWSB Bank staff members will then work like Santa’s Elves to create individual stockings filled with the collected donations for children served by The Shepherd’s Staff.
