Island Heights Environmental Committee Collects

We are so grateful for the enthusiastic participation of the Island Heights Environmental Committee that collected 50+ beautiful and good-as-new toys. They were thrilled to keep them out of the waste stream and put them into the hands of children at local organization, O.C.E.A.N / Head Start L.E.A.P. in Ocean County, NJ. Pictured here is Tanara Hall helping a representative from O.C.E.A.N. load up the toys to be loved once again!

Toy Tales: Toys Promote Self-Esteem and Behavioral Changes

Second Chance Toys recently designated Archer Elementary School in the Bronx (NY) to receive a collection of toys. The toys have had a huge impact on many of the students, used not only for play at recess, but in the classrooms and very importantly, in counseling sessions.

A Longstanding Partnership with DASD Reaps Big Benefits

For the 8th year in a row, the Downingtown Area School District (DASD), Downingtown, PA, has been conducting a holiday toy collection. After their individual schools are finished collecting the toys, they are all rounded up to a central location for pickup. This year was nothing less than AMAZING!! DASD was able to collect and donate 500 toys to local children served by nine locations of Gordon Head Start in nearby Coatesville, PA.
