STATEN ISLAND, N.Y., Aug. 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Chelsea Financial Services is proud to announce their continued partnership with Where to Turn, a crises relief organization, by providing a weekday drop-off location for their annual "Christmas in August" Toy Drive in Staten Island benefiting local children in need.
"Chelsea Financial Services was a tremendous partner for our past Holiday Toy Drives, so we're excited that they have offered to assist us with our "Christmas in August" Toy Drive, allowing us to use their office at 242 Main Street as a weekday drop-off point for unwrapped toy donations." stated Dennis McKeon, Founder of Where-to-Turn.org. "John Pisapia and his team have been deeply involved in the community for nearly 23 years. In addition to our Toy Drives, Chelsea Financial Services helps support our other programs by sponsoring our website redesign plus ongoing website maintenance and hosting costs, which helps us "get the word out" on our programs and services."
In addition to its popular Annual Toy Drives, Where to Turn provides many other local charitable services, including Snow Shoveling for Seniors, a huge Prop Shop with thousands of stage props for community theater or school productions, Disaster Recovery, Crises Relief, a Senior Citizens Prom and so much more.
Where to Turn was first introduced to Chelsea Financial by Frank Cilento, a Chelsea Financial Services Representative for 12 years. Cilento began his career in Financial Services in 1990, and joined Chelsea in 2009. Like Pisapia, Cilento is deeply involved in the Staten Island community and a staunch supporter of Where-to-Turn.org.
"As a longtime resident of Staten Island, it's great to be part of a firm that is deeply rooted in local charitable giving." explained Cilento. "Chelsea Financial has over 73 Registered Representatives covering 51 States and Territories, so even though we're national, our President continues to support amazing local charitable activities like this Toy Drive."
