TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Children with life-threatening illnesses were presented with toys and a $11,000 check on Thursday morning, June 7, by a Tucson Allstate office.

Ten agents from the Allstate insurance office on West Orange Grove Road gathered toys to fill the Make-A-Wish closets in Tucson hospitals and donated $11,000 to the organization to help local children live out their dreams.

"This is really what we're all about," says Rob LaMaster, director of the Southern Arizona chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. "We wouldn't exist or be able to help so many children with life-threatening illnesses if we didn't have volunteers and the generosity of people like those here today."

Bailey, a resident of Tucson, was diagnosed with a terminal illness last year. Her wish is to go to Seaworld and Disneyland.

"I am a big fan of dolphins, so I can't wait to go to Seaworld," she said. "More than anything, I'm just looking forward to spending time with my family."
