NASHVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Get One, Give One Stocking Giveaway" (Stocking Go-Go) hosted by Direct Auto & Life Insurance is back for the fourth consecutive year. Anyone can enter for the chance to win a giant, six-foot tall stocking filled with toys by visiting their local Direct store or www.directgeneral.com/stocking-go-gobetween Nov. 21 and Dec. 17.
"At Direct, we love being part of the community," said Ann Davids, Direct's Chief Marketing Officer. "That's really what inspired Stocking Go-Go. We wanted to find a fun way to give back to the people in our communities during the holiday season."
Here's where "Get One, Give One" comes in: for each stocking winner, Direct will give another giant stocking filled with toys to United Way or another local charity. Between contest winners and charity recipients, the insurance provider will give away more than 800 giant stockings for this year's contest.
"The charity component of Stocking Go-Go is what makes it truly special," said Davids. "We're pleased to be working with United Way this year to give away toy-filled stockings in our service area and, hopefully, make a difference in some deserving families' lives this holiday season."
Visitors to participating Direct stores will have an additional opportunity to take home goodies for the holidays during the event. While supplies last, in-store visitors who get a free, no-obligation quote will receive a smaller stocking with toys.
Direct customers who prefer to do business by phone will also have the opportunity to win a $250 gift card during the Stocking Go-Go event by calling 1-877-GO-DIRECT.
