People’s Trust Insurance, a Florida-based homeowner’s insurance company, collected toys for children in the Women in Distress Shelter in Broward County. Over the past 9 years People’s Trust Insurance has participated in annual holiday toy drives, and for the past three years they have teamed up with the Broward Sheriff’s Office to collect toys for Women in Distress.   

“We are so excited to see how many faces will light up after receiving a toy and are grateful for the opportunity to bring holiday cheer to children in the Women in Distress Shelters. Partnering with the Broward Sheriff’s Office and donating to Women in Distress helps our entire team get into the holiday giving spirit each year,” said George Schaeffer, People’s Trust Insurance President and Chief Executive Officer.

The holiday toy collection runs from November through early December and collects new and unwrapped toys for children who will not be spending this holiday season at home.

Women in Distress is a nationally accredited, full service, domestic violence center serving Broward County. The center raises awareness around domestic abuse through intervention, education and advocacy. Services like a 24-hour crisis line, emergency shelter program, counseling and support groups are offered free of charge to victims.

People’s Trust Insurance has partnered with Women in Distress over the years to provide sponsorship at events empowering women and donated hundreds of kids’ pillows and pillow cases called Cuddle Covers.

“Every year our employees look forward to participating in the toy drive and bringing in even more toys than the year before. Together, we strive to help make a difference in the community, especially in the life of a child,” Schaeffer added.
