Annual Holiday Bear Drive

Spread some holiday smiles.

Help a child feel a little more safe, comforted, and loved by taking part in our annual holiday bear drive. 

2018 will mark the 24th year of this wonderful, fun tradition. Since the program’s inception in 1995, our clients, employees and friends have donated over 16,000 teddy bears for area community organizations. The bears decorate our Christmas trees and are then given to children who are in need of comfort and help to rebuild their lives.

This year the drive begins on December 3rd and goes through December 28th. Donations of new stuffed teddy bears will be accepted at any American Bank location and then find homes in the arms of children at:


Holiday Open House

We invite you to stop in any American Bank location December 10-14 for refreshments, cookies, and warm wishes.
