Toys for the Troops’ Kids Toy Drive, El Segundo - December 13

What makes the holidays fun? Toys and smiles and there were plenty this past holiday.  Once again, we were proud to support the Kiwanis Club of Torrance’s toy drive “Toys for the Troops’ Kids” and the resulting efforts were fantastic.  Children with parents actively serving in units of the National Guard, Air Force, Army, Marine Corps and Navy were recipients of generous donations. Thank you to our customers and employees at Malaga Bank for your contributions.
