There are more than 20,000 children right here in Bergen County living in poverty, and without the help of organizations like Toys For Tots, many of them would probably not receive any gifts this Christmas
Park Ridge, NJ (PRWEB) November 22, 2016
The Carballo Agency, a New Jersey-based insurance and financial planning firm providing services to clients throughout the greater New York metropolitan region, is embarking on a charity effort to help raise awareness and donations for the North Jersey Toys For Tots program.
Started in 1947 by the US Marine Corps Reserve, Toys For Tots has become a national effort centered on gathering toy donations and handing them out as wrapped holiday gifts to children from underprivileged families. The overall mission of the Toys For Tots organizations is to provide “a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, and patriotic citizens.”
“There are more than 20,000 children right here in Bergen County living in poverty, and without the help of organizations like Toys For Tots, many of them would probably not receive any gifts this Christmas,” says Yasiria Carballo, founder and acting manager of the Carballo Agency.
To publicize the Bergen County charity drive on behalf of the local Toys For Tots effort, Carballo and her team are building an online social media and email network that will provide information on the event to nearby residents. The Carballo team also plans to publish a full length article featuring Toys For Tots and the fundraising effort in this month’s issue of “Our Hometown,” a webzine hosted by the Carballo Agency: http://carballoagency.com/magazines/.
Toys For Tots is only the first of many charity initiatives planned by the Carballo Agency over the coming months. The firm has recently become part of the national “Agents of Change” charity support movement and is committed to finding and supporting a new regional charity every sixty days.
