Allstate New Jersey Lends a Hand in Cancer Fight During Life Insurance Awareness Month

‘Quotes for a Cure’ Program to Benefit The Cancer Institute of New Jersey
September 4, 2012

Allstate Quotes for a CureNew Brunswick, N.J. – When one thinks of a "quote," words of wisdom usually come to mind. But in talking about an annual campaign with Allstate New Jersey Insurance Company that benefits The Cancer Institute of New Jersey (CINJ), the word "quote" takes on a different meaning – one with impact on saving lives.

Now through October 1, Allstate New Jersey will donate $10 to the CINJ Foundation for every life or auto insurance quote requested (up to $20 per person) through any of Allstate's 230 New Jersey agents (www.allstateagencies.com). The 2012 "Quotes for a Cure" effort will support research, treatment, prevention and education programs at CINJ, which is a Center of Excellence of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.

The goal for this year's campaign is to raise $50,000, adding to nearly $100,000 raised over the past three years.

"Allstate New Jersey is proud to be a part of the communities we serve. We help protect our customers from life's uncertainties, and through ‘Quotes for a Cure,’ we have a great opportunity to support The Cancer Institute of New Jersey and make an impact against cancer," said Allstate New Jersey President Rich Crist.

"Allstate New Jersey’s continued commitment to CINJ will benefit the many residents statewide whose lives are touched by cancer. From research and treatment to prevention and cancer awareness education initiatives, the ‘Quotes for a Cure’ campaign will support all aspects of CINJ's core mission. We are pleased once again to have Allstate New Jersey as a community partner in these efforts," said CINJ Foundation Director of Major Gifts Leanne Kochy.
