In an effort to spread joy to children this Christmas, Edward Jones is matching donations of funds up to $500 to a non-profit organization of an advisor's choosing. Keri Austwick, an Edward Jones Financial Advisor for the Taylorville location has chosen Toys for Tots as her non-profit organization and has donated the maximum $500 which has been matched by Edward Jones and will go to Toys for Tots.
Edward Jones in Taylorville is now collecting unwrapped presents for kids of all ages, inside their business located at 601 North Webster Street in Taylorville. Austwick begins with her inspiration for including Toys for Tots in the initiative's first year.
Austwick explains how the local community can get involved.
Austwick explained that teenagers are often hard to shop for when donating to Toys for Tots, adding that toys for youngsters are easy but knowing what a teen wants is important to keep this in mind while shopping for someone in need.
Donations are being accepted now through December 20th at Edward Jones in Taylorville at 601 North Webster Street in Taylorville. For more information, the community can call 217-824-7811.
