Chardoussin Family Donates to Norwescap Family Success Center

Katie Chardoussin, a parent of two children, in Warren County, NJ, contacted us last fall to see how she and her children could participate in a collection of gently used plastic toys. She was interested in the fact that they could learn from this experience firsthand from the experience and benefit from the teachable moments that Second Chance Toys provides.

They tackled the collection head on by contacting friends, family and neighbors to donate. Their very first effort yielded an incredible 150 toys! Second Chance Toys matched their collection with Norwescap Family Success Center. Katie and her children asked if they could deliver the toys themselves and add to the life lessons her children could experience.

After they dropped off the toys, Katie noted, " Today we dropped off the 150 toys our family collected to Denise at Norwescap! She added, "It was such a great experience for our family, especially my children, who have a new meaning of giving!"

Many thanks to the Chardoussin family for your amazing donation of toys and for recognizing the benefits that your own children can reap from our collection experience.
