Freeway/Confie NY to Sponsor Toys for Tots for Third Stright Year



The partnership between Freeway Insurance and Toys for Tots has been successful in the past, with
Freeway/Confie donating over $2 million in advertising services and contributing more than 2,500
toys in previous years. For the 2019 holiday season, Cone hopes to improve these numbers
even more.

"We're pleased to help out an organization like Toys for Tots," said Cesar Soriano, Freeway/Confie's
Chief Executive Officer. "Toys for Tots does great things for the communities we serve, and
together, we can help improve the holiday season for children across the country."
Toys for Tots began in 1947, and since then, has provided 258 million children across the
United States with over 566 million toys. As a top-ranked charity, their mission is to help
America's less fortunate children still experience the joy of Christmas with the gift of a new
toy.

that help children become responsible citizens and caring members of their community.

million less fortunate children in over 800 communities nationwide. Since 1947 over 258
