Items can be dropped off for the holiday season project through Dec. 20 during lobby hours at these Kitsap Bank branches:

• Bay Street: 619 Bay St., Port Orchard.

• South Park: 1700 Village Lane SE, Port Orchard.

• Bethel and Lund: 3324 Bethel Rd. SE, Port Orchard.

“We are pleased to again partner with the Soroptimists to give back to the community, Linda Smith, Kitsap Bank’s executive vice president and credit administrator, said in a news release. “Through this year’s project, we hope to raise awareness of the needs here at home.”
