Toys For Tots Donation Deadline Looms Friday

SANATOGA PA – The owners of two local Allstate Insurance offices – Tom Dunn in Sanatoga and Dolores Fleming in Pottstown – are among a lengthy list of area merchants, service providers, and community organizations who this year are collecting donations for the annual children’s toys holiday drive conducted by the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.

Area residents are urged to stop by their agencies, or any other Toys For Tots collection center (see the list below), to donate new, unwrapped toys for local children in need.If you’re interested in supporting the effort, though, you’d better hurry. The collection deadline is Friday (Dec. 15, 2017).

  • Dunn’s office is located at 1954 E. High St., Sanatoga; and
  • Fleming’s office is at 1800 E. High St., Ste 325, Pottstown.

“I see firsthand the opportunities and challenges facing our area,” Dunn said. “Giving back is tremendously rewarding, and gives me a sense of purpose. I believe when we help others we can be a positive force for change in our communities, which is why I’m proud to support the foundation.”

“Finding a present under the tree on Christmas morning is an experience every child deserves,” foundation vice-president and retired Marine Colonel Ted Silvester added.

The foundation this year also will receive an $88,000 grant from The Allstate Foundation Helping Hands in the Community grant program.
