Rochester-area Allstate agency owners are teaming up to host a supply drive to benefit the YWCA of Rochester & Monroe Counties.
The donations will support the nonprofit’s mission to empower women to regain control of their lives and to get on the path to a healthy, successful future. The supply drive is part of a multi-region Allstate Foundation Purple Purse donation effort that will benefit domestic violence nonprofits throughout Connecticut; Delaware; Maryland; Massachusetts; New Jersey; New York; Pennsylvania; Virginia; Washington, D.C.; and West Virginia.
Now through Dec. 11, the public can participate by donating cleaning supplies — mops, brooms, paper towels and powdered laundry detergent — nonperishable food, personal care items, diapers and infant formula. A complete list of most-needed supplies can be at bit.ly/AllstateFoundationRochester.
Through their volunteer efforts, each participating Rochester-area Allstate agency owner will secure a $1,000 Allstate Foundation Helping Hands grant. The National Network to End Domestic Violence will accept the grants and distribute the funding to local domestic violence nonprofits.
“As small business owners and community leaders, these Allstate agency owners see firsthand the opportunities and challenges facing the communities they serve,” said New York Region Allstate spokesperson Kayla Taylor. “Giving back is core to who they are as agency owners, which is why they’re proud to volunteer and raise funds to support survivors of domestic violence and their families across the Rochester area.”
