7,500 Toys with Kohl's Cares Associates in Action

It takes time, a lot of dedication, and a ton of ‘care’ to accomplish what the Kohl’s Cares team did this Earth Week.

Over 500 Kohl’s associates from New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware volunteered with Second Chance Toys for the fifth annual Kohl’s Cares Go Green event and the results were outstanding. 


The volunteers joined Second Chance Toys at the Delaware Children's Museum for a toy drive and Family Fun Day celebration. After the dancing, popcorn, face painting, and museum exploration concluded, over 7,500 toys collected by Kohl's associates were distributed to organizations serving kids in need across the 3 states by our amazing partners at 1-800-GOT-JUNK?.  Instead of winding up in a landfill, those toys found themselves in the hands of their new recipients by sundown.

Brother Miguel Ramirez was in attendance representing one of the recipient organizations and offered to say a few words about what the toy donations mean to him, his organization, and the children;

“The fact that these toys are not only going to be benefiting the children, but that they are also being saved from the landfills, is just amazing. The children always run up to me and ask when we will be getting toy donations for them to play with and I always tell them that I hope we will be receiving donations soon. Because of you, I’ll be able to hand these toys out to those children, some of who live in our shelters, and they will be so happy to have something to call their own."

It was an amazing day and we look forward to working with Kohl’s Cares again to do even more good for the environment and for the very deserving little ones who need it the most.
