New Jersey Children’s Museum Celebrates the Season of Giving!

Give_thanks Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the holiday season as we prepare to give special gifts for our loved ones. This holiday season will be greatly affected by the uncertainty of our economy and many organizations serving needy children will have fewer toys available for them.
The New Jersey Children’s Museum will be hosting another toy collection program with Second Chance Toys whereby families can bring to the museum a gently used, plastic toy in good condition. In return, they will be given a FREE return pass for a future visit!
Toys will be collected from November 1 through November 30. Drop off times will be weekdays 1pm-5pm and weekends 11am-5pm. All toys must be plastic, (no stuffed animals or dolls), must be substantial in size, in good working condition, no small or missing pieces and toys with battery and or electronic devices must be with batteries and working. Not all toys accepted. One pass per family.
Join the New Jersey Children’s Museum and Second Chance Toys in teaching our children life lesson around giving of themselves to help others and the importance of protecting the environment.
As part of the program, 1-800-GOT-JUNK, will generously donate their services in transporting the collected toys to local organizations serving children in need.
Thank you in advance for providing a gift of happiness for needy children.
