HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., Dec. 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Freeway Insurance, a division of Confie, the largest independent personal lines agency and broker in the U.S., announced that its employees and customers collected more than 3,500 toys to donate to Toys for Tots and contributed more than $2.1 million in advertising services to help spread awareness of the program.
In its five years as a Toys for Tots partner, Freeway has donated more than 15,000 toys and given more than $10M in advertising nationwide.
“I couldn’t be prouder of our employees and customers for coming together to help children in need this holiday season,” said Cesar Soriano, CEO of Confie. “We look forward to lifting children’s spirits this holiday season and our continued partnership with Toys for Tots.”
As they kicked off the donation season this year, Freeway teamed up with NASCAR Cup Series race car driver Daniel Suárez to thank fans who donated toys by providing a free autograph for every item donated. As a result, Freeway collected more than 200 toys in under two hours to kick off their Toys for Tots campaign.
Through the gift of a new toy, the Toys for Tots program, operated by the United States Marine Corps Reserve, strives to help bring the joy of Christmas and send a message of hope to America’s less fortunate children.
“Every child should experience the joy for receiving a new toy for the holidays, and the contributions by Freeway will make this a reality for thousands of children across the country,” said Colonel Ted Silvester, USMC (Retired), Vice President, Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. “The holidays will be a little brighter thanks to Freeway and its customers.”
