The Allstate Foundation Grants $1000 to Pediatric Oncology Treasure Chest Foundation
Allstate agency owner Jeffrey Dziedzic received the Agency Hands in the Community Award for his commitment to helping others. With this award came a $1000 grant from The Allstate Foundation for the Pediatric Oncology Treasure Chest Foundation in Orland Park, where Dziedzic volunteers. The Treasure Chest program allows cancer patients (ranging in age from birth through 18 years) at 46 children's cancer treatment centers to choose an age appropriate toy as a reward for having the courage to undergo painful but necessary procedures.
Allstate agents and employees have a proud history of putting their good hands to work in supporting Illinois communities, promoting volunteerism and providing financial resources to enable local organizations to help others.
“The Agency Hands in the Community Award celebrates the spirit of service “Commitment to our communities is a natural extension of what we do every day – protecting people and making their lives more secure,” said Shaundra Turner, director of The Allstate Foundation in Illinois. “With support from The Allstate Foundation, Jeffrey Dziedzic and the Pediatric Oncology Treasure Chest Foundation is making our hometown a better, safer place to live.”
The Allstate Foundation awards more than $1 million every year to nonprofit organizations across the country in honor of dedicated Allstate agency owners who give back. To be eligible for nomination, Allstate agency owners must with volunteer, mentor or lead a nonprofit of their choice.
