Employees and their families have donated time inspecting donated shoebox gifts and preparing them for overseas shipment.

“This is the second year American Community Bank employees and their families have volunteered with Operation Christmas Child and we are pleased to have even more employees involved than last year,” said Bryce Friesz, City Executive. “It is a great opportunity for us to come together as a bank and as a community.”

Each year, the international relief organization Samaritan’s Purse collects donations of shoeboxes filled with children’s gifts, which it processes and ships to needy children in more than 130 countries. To learn more about Operation Christmas Child, visit
