Creating best dressed dolls for kids in need

Email News Alerts

For 22 years, Bell State Bank and Trust has been not only giving dolls and stuffed animals to children in need, but first customers help dress them in their finest outfits.


The bank provided 17 dolls and 16 stuffed animals this year, and customers who wanted to "check-out" the dolls could take them home and dress them and style their hair.

The goal is to do them up right for the kids who will ultimately receive them as gifts.
