WESTFIELD, NJ — Ron Bansky and Associates Allstate Insurance Agency is collecting new and gently used toys this season for local children in need. Toys will be donated to Furniture Assist, a Springfield volunteer organization that provides families in need with everything required to furnish their homes.

“Our agency believes in giving back to the community and we're always grateful for the opportunity to help Furniture Assist collect toys for the children of families they serve,” owner Ron Bansky said. “They do such meaningful work in helping families by helping families in need with furniture all year long, but they really show how much they care by helping those families provide toys for their children during the holiday season.”

Drop toys during office hours at the Allstate office at 502 East Broad St. until Dec. 31. Learn more about Furniture Assist at www.furnitureassist.com.
