Holiday Food & Gift Drive to Benefit Troops, Families, and Kids

Food, Troops and Toys Drive 2012

Ticor has an established tradition of giving back to our communities during the holiday season.  For the 2012 holiday season we are providing support by gathering food, supplies, funds, and gifts to benefit our military troops abroad, the hungry in our community, and children who hope for a happier holiday.

Together, our generous donations will make a difference in the lives of many this holiday season! Thank you for giving back!

Where to donate

Each of our seven escrow branches has a donation station at the front desk.  When you visit us for an appointment, please remember to bring along something to benefit troops, families, or kids.
