Booz Allen Hamilton Making a Difference with SCT

This Earth Week, associates from Booz Allen Hamilton in Mclean, VA collected beautiful gently used plastic toys with Second Chance Toys. The Booz Allen associates held a cleaning and tagging event after the toys were gathered to make sure they were in perfect condition for their new owners.

With the help of our friends at 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Washington DC,  all of the toys were delivered to two different local recipient organizations serving kids in need.

12,000 Smiles--All In A Day's Work

Together with Kohl's Cares, the volunteer and community service arm of Kohl's Department Stores, we saved 3,000 toys from the landfills this weekend! This year, for our National Go Green Event with Kohl's Cares on April 25, we did something different. We coordinated 32 events across 5 states with more than 350 Kohl's employees volunteering their time and donating toys to organizations that directly benefit children. Those organizations included many Head Start locations, women's shelters, and low-income/free daycare programs.
