Allstate Agent Hero Joseph DiBlasi (holding check, l.) presents a $1,000 check to S.T.A.R.S. volunteer staff and some young participants in the program.

Allstate agent Joseph DiBlasi, whose office is located at 35-16 Ditmars Blvd. in Astoria, was recently named an Agent Hero by Allstate Insurance Company's New York Region for his awarding a $1,000 grant to a local youth program. DiBlasi donated $1,000 to Striving to Achieve & Reach Success (S.T.A.R.S.), a volunteer staffed, community youth organization in Howard Beach providing children with recreational, educational and self-developmental activities and events.

"As an Allstate agent, I believe it is my responsibility to demonstrate the Good Hands Promise in the Queens community every single day," DiBlasi said. "It is an honor to be able to donate this grant to S.T.A.R.S. and, hopefully, touch the lives of the youth who are involved."
