Mechanics Bank hosts local holiday-season collection drive for Toys for Tots

Donation boxes for new, unwrapped toys are available at participating Mechanics Bank branches

Once again, Mechanics Bank is teaming up with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program this holiday season to help ensure less fortunate children can receive a gift.

Customers, employees and community members are invited to donate new, unwrapped toys at participating Mechanics Bank branches in California. Donation deadlines vary by county; but a general guideline is Thursday, Dec. 15, which allows time for Toys for Tots volunteers to sort and distribute the toys where they are needed locally.

Request a Toy This Holiday Season

Parents and legal guardians who want to request for a toy for a child should visit Toys for Tots’ “Request a Toy page,” which will direct them to their local Toys for Tots program for more information.

Mechanics Bank again lauded by Forbes as one of nation’s best banks

Press Releases
Tuesday, March 15, 2022


Mechanics Bank is again one of America’s best banks based on growth, credit quality and profitability, according to Forbes. In its 13th annual report issued Feb. 3, 2022, the global media outlet ranked the Bank 32nd among the nation’s 100 largest publicly traded banks and thrifts.

“Among other things, Forbes’ acknowledgement is a testament to our exceptionally strong capital levels which far exceed the required minimums to be considered ‘well-capitalized’ in accordance with regulatory standards,” said John DeCero, president and chief executive officer of Mechanics Bank. “

Forbes’ research and rankings were supported by data from S&P Global Market Intelligence, which examined regulatory filings through Sept. 30, 2021. The metrics included return on average tangible common equity, return on average assets, net interest margin, efficiency ratio and net charge-offs as a percentage of total loans.
