Rhode Island Mortgage Professionals Join Forces for Annual Toys for Tots Drive

Professionals working in the mortgage industry plowed through snow to participate in the recent Rhode Island Mortgage Bankers Association (RIMBA) Annual Toys for Tots Breakfast at the Metacomet Golf Club. Dozens of unwrapped gifts quickly piled up, marking another successful event for RIMBA.
 
“It will take a little more than snow to stop our members from attending,” said Patrick Deady, president of RIMBA and senior vice president and director of residential and consumer lending at BankFive. “We are proud to continue a tradition that has brought thousands of smiles to kids over the years.”
 
Throughout the month of November, RIMBA reminded its members about the importance of giving back and encouraged organization leaders to host their own toy drives leading up to the event. Stacks of toys and games were collected and brought to the event for that purpose, which RIMBA leaders say was very much appreciated.
 
“I want to thank all of you for coming out this morning, and for bringing these fabulous gifts,” said Tom Fleming, executive vice president at RIMBA. “These items mean the world to children who are facing financial hardship.”
 
The Marine Toys for Tots program was established in 1947 with the mission of delivering toys to children in need. Through the program, millions of toys have been successfully distributed to children from underprivileged backgrounds. At the end of the event, members from the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve accepted the charitable donations from Rhode Island’s mortgage industry professionals.
