In a statement, Wilfork said, “I encourage all of my fans to visit an Eastern Bank branch and donate a toy – no gift is too small or too large.”

With $8 billion in assets, Eastern Bank is the largest independent and mutually owned bank in New England. The bank is headquartered in Boston, and its branches are located in communities from the Merrimack Valley to Cape Cod.
