This time of year is all about spending time with family and friends, being thankful for what we have, and especially for the little ones, spoiling our loved ones with gifts.

Some families are struggling though, and it's the children that suffer -- so why not help to make a child's holiday a little brighter this year?

OceanFirst Bank has teamed up with the Salvation Army again this year for the Angel Giving Tree program.

Starting Friday, November 28th, you can go into any OceanFirst Bank location and find a holiday tree in their lobby, decorated with angel tags.

Each one of those tags will have the age and gender of a child. Simply take the tag, purchase a gift for that child, and bring the (new, unopened, and unwrapped) present and tag to any OceanFirst branch.

The program serves kids from Monmouth, Ocean, and Middlesex Counties.

It's a really easy way to make a child smile this holiday season!

The program ends on Friday, December 12th.
