New Jersey Children's Museum Collects over 240 Toys for Local Head Start Program

Members of the New Jersey Children's Museum (above) collected over 240 toys as part of their Holiday Toy Drive to benefit Head Start in Bergenfield, NJ. The museum received tremendous feedback from customers who were all thrilled that they were collecting "used" toys since most toy drives this time of year expect a new toy. Customers were equally pleased to hear that the toys were going to local area children in need. The donated toys we're transported by the local 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Franchise Partner of New Jersey Northeast to the Headstart Center (below). 

Good And Green Marketing Conference to Be the Stage for Second Chance Toys Chicago Initiative

Sasha Lipton, founder of Second Chance Toys, will present a donation of toys to the YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago on Wednesday, December 3rd . The donation will take place at the Chicago Cultural Center as part of the Good And Green Marketing Conference.

Five branches of Cartridge World have served as drop-off locations for plastic toy donations around Chicago and its suburbs and area businesses have also participated in toy rescue refforts. 

The toys will be piled in a huge mound in the rotunda of the Chicago Cultural Center to demonstate how many toys are thrown needlessly into the landfills.
Second Chance Toys, founded in 2006, has donated over 10,000 toys which has helped minimize plastic going into landfills while at the same helping children. This award-winning organization has been recognized for the waste-need solution it provides to communities.
