Chelsea Financial Services is organizing a Toy Drive this holiday season in Staten Island to benefit local children in need via Where to Turn, a local crisis relief services organization.
Frank Cilento, a Financial Advisor at Chelsea Financial Services, is heading up the Toy Drive. “We just completed a successful Thanksgiving Food Drive for Project Hospitality,” Cilento said. “We wanted to continue that momentum with a Toy Drive for the kids in our community who are going through tough times this holiday season.”
Cilento has been a longtime Chelsea Financial Services Financial Representative. He began his career in Financial Services in 1990, and joined Chelsea in 2009. Cilento is no stranger to community service; he has been an active member of the South Shore Rotary Club since 1992, including as a past President and Paul Harris Fellow. This Toy Drive sponsored by Chelsea Financial Services ties in well with his annual work with the South Shore Rotary Club where he fundraises for gifts for the holiday party for children at PS37.
As a resident of Staten Island, Cilento is proud to be part of a firm that, like him, has many longstanding charitable ties to the community. “It’s great to work and live in the same community; This way, you can really experience the positive impact your employer makes, especially with our annual charitable giving at the local level.” added Cilento.

Please drop off new, unwrapped toys at Chelsea Financial Services’ Corporate Office located at 242 Main Street, Staten Island, any time between the hours of 9am and 5pm, Monday through Friday, until December 19th.
