New Jersey Allstate agency owners support domestic violence nonprofits by hosting donation drive

Now through Dec. 11, the public can participate by donating new winter coats, hats, gloves and scarves for women, boys and girls.

Allstate agency owners from across New Jersey are coming together to host a supply drive to benefit the New Jersey Coalition to End Domestic Violence (NJCEDV). The donations will support the nonprofit’s mission to provide services to help end domestic violence and financial abuse throughout the state. The supply drive is part of a multi-state Allstate Foundation Purple Purse® donation effort that will benefit domestic violence shelters 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 new winter coats, hats, gloves and scarves for women, boys and girls.

A complete list of most-needed supplies can be found here: bit.ly/AllstateFoundationTrenton.

Through their volunteer efforts, each participating Allstate agency owner will secure a $1,000 Allstate Foundation Helping Hands® grant. The National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) will accept the grants and distribute the funding to local domestic violence nonprofits.

Items are being collected at the following local Allstate locations in Burlington County:

· Lia Domenick: 990 N. Route 73, Marlton
