The work that 1-800-Got-Junk? does for Second Chance Toys is nothing short of amazing.  For more than 7 years the 1-800-Got-Junk? franchise partners and their teams have been the glue connecting toy collections with the toy recipients.  They have transported over 150,000 toys to deserving girls and boys. And for all their contribution, we want to thank them immensely for being such an integral part of the Second Chance Toys mission.
