1-800-Got-Junk? Delivers For Kids!!

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.

10K Strong for Earth Week Collections

It's been a busy few weeks here! We're excited to announce that Earth Week 2015 collections totaled 10,000 toys. That's 10,000 toys in the hands of children in need, rather than taking up space in a landfill. That's roughly 20 TONS of plastic saved! A special thank you to all of our volunteers and to our partners at 1-800-GOT-JUNK, Kidville, Kohl's, and Viacom. Let's do it again next year!

Maryland Schools Collects Second Chance Toys

PhotoY Phototoys For the first time, Phelps Luck Elementary School teamed up with Second Chance toys to collect approximately 200 gently used toys. Although they were not able to hold the drive during Earth Week, recycling was on the minds of Laura Shucosky and Therese Cooper of Phelps Luck Elementary School, who organized the school-wide event.  Donations of the gently used toys were given to the YMCA in Ellicott City, Maryland (The Dancel Family Center).  Kirsten Eads, the program director of the Dancel Family Center, was grateful to receive such nice toys to help the children at the YMCA. 1-800-Got-Junk? also volunteered its resources to transport the donations on Friday June, 3rd to the YMCA.  Thanks again to Phelps Luck Elementary and 1-800-Got-Junk?.

MOMs Club of Moorestown was so happy to take part in the Second Chance Toys Earth Day Collection. We delivered our toys to Gwen Pullen, Outreach Coordinator, House of God Church in Delran, NJ on April 29th. Gwen planned a Community Day with approximately 20 invited families where the donated toys would find  great homes and help our environment by keeping plastic out of landfills!
