This holiday season the Allied Foundation and the team at DB Schenker Insurance & Trade Advisory Services and Transportation Logistics combined forces to orchestrate a toy drive resulting in dozens of toys being delivered to Patchogue-based Community Housing Innovations, Inc.
The Allied Foundation is a not-for-profit founded by the Allied Physicians Group, an organization comprised of pediatricians based in the New York Metropolitan area and committed to providing the personal service associated with doctors maintaining an independent practice while enjoying the benefits belonging to an organization led by physicians.

In addition to the toy drive, this holiday season DB Schenker corralled more than 200 books to benefit the Freeport-based Book Fairies, a not-for-profit organization that collects reading materials for people in need throughout metropolitan New York in order to foster literacy and academic success and nurture a love of reading across age groups.
The Allied Foundation also conducts “diaper drives” throughout the year and distribute more than 40,000 per year throughout Nassau and Suffolk counties via 25 partner agencies to benefit families struggling with diaper need across Long Island.
Established in 1991, Community Housing Innovations, Inc. provides families and individuals with emergency, transitional and permanent housing as well as supportive services, homeownership counseling, education and grant assistance, and foreclosure prevention counseling.
