Children and families head to a local insurance company for free gifts and holiday cheer
SEAFORD, Del. – One Way Insurance Group held their second annual Free Toy giveaway on Sunday afternoon, giving Sussex County families a start to a memorable Christmas.
At 2 p.m., they opened up their doors to welcome parents and children to a free gift wonderland. Each child present got to choose their own toy, and even get a free family picture. We’re told, the event grew from last year, with people lined up at the door waiting to get a gift that some families say, might be the only gift they get.
“A lot of families went through things so there are less fortunate families so it’s a blessing to be able to get something, it’s a blessing in itself,” says community member, Borzet.
Borzet tells us, she brought her nieces and nephews to the event and wanted to do something different this year. She says events like these pull the community together. Her niece Kyliah tells 47 ABC, she too understood the importance of the day. “It’s a great thing that everybody is doing this for everybody and even people that need help and don’t have a lot of money to buy Christmas gifts.” Kyliah adds, “I’m excited to just have literally anything.”
Meanwhile, Borzet’s other niece Jaliyah represented some of the excitement many of the children say they felt when walking through the door. “I’m excited because I might probably get to open it and it doesn’t even have to be Christmas yet.”
Families also tell us they were excited to see a business doing so much for the community especially during this time of year.
Founders of One Way Insurance Group say they hope this event grows every year, that way they can provide a Christmas for more families in Delaware.
