1-800-GOT-JUNK?... Always at the Ready!

1-800-GOT-JUNK? first approached Second Chance Toys to volunteer their services in 2008. It made sense at the time, since their mission is also green and they are committed to reuse and recycling. Now, ten years later, this long standing relationship continues to be a blessing for us. Year after year and collection after collection, our friends at 1-800-GOT-JUNK? have helped Second Chance Toys transport large collections of toys to local organizations in states throughout the country.  They are always eager to help and their truck teams are consistently great to work with. Without their involvement, Second Chance Toys could not have scaled nor distribute the massive collections that we do.

This Earth Month was no different. Their big blue and green trucks loaded up very large collections of hundreds and even thousands of toys and delivered them to multiple local organizations in NJ, NY, VA, MD and DC. In some instances, multiple trucks were necessary for pickup and delivery of all the toys. Their drop off destinations, which have sometimes included staircases, tiny elevators and basements for unloading, have never represented an obstacle.

1-800-GOT-JUNK? has allotted, time, trucks, fuel and manpower to help us keep plastic toys out of landfills and put them into the hands of those less fortunate. Now that is a generous proposition, especially over a decade!! Thank you for your continued support!!
