Early Intervention Program of New Jersey Loves Their Second Chance Toys

To our friends at Second Chance Toys: 
Once again your organization has overwhelmed us with wonderful toys that are developmentally appropriate for the infants and toddlers whom we serve.  The families, children and therapists who serve them will be THRILLED to have such wonderful materials to work with. One of the real strengths of your program is that you get toys that have all of their parts and work!  We do not have to sort through them and then discard toys that are unusable.

Troop 335 Brightens the Holiday for Needy Children

IMG_1414 Girl Scout Troop 335 of Manalapan has been very busy this holiday season. As part of their Bronze Award project, the troop held used toy drives in their neighborhoods to benefit Second Chance Toys.
The troop collected over 13 bags of gently used plastic toys in addition to two bags of new toys, two large plastic kitchens, a desk, an art easel and a Barbie jeep. Next, the girls cleaned the toys and made sure they were in working order. The toys were then dropped off to the Marlboro, NJ Branch of Investors Savings bank. They will soon be transported by volunteers from 1-800-Got Junk? to organizations that will distribute them to children in need.
In addition to having lots of fun, the girls learned about the value of recycling to help the environment as well as the importance of helping those less fortunate than themselves.

Congregation Commits to Cause

Picture1 Congregation B’nai Jeshurun (TBJ) ran a used plastic toy drive in partnership with Second Chance Toys during Earth Week, 2010.  The religious school and Early Childhood Center (ECC) participated in the toy drive.  Collection bins were placed in the TBJ lobby from April 18th through April 25th.  We are happy to announce that we collected approximately 6 large plastic garbage bags full of toys of all sizes that were distributed to the ARC of Essex County.  We look forward to partnering with Second Chance Toys in the future, as our congregation includes many families eager to help the greater community.
