Eagle Scout Collects 1,000 Toys for SCT

Eagle Scout Mark Ciccaglione volunteered his time to collect toys for Second Chance Toys for the holidays in his hometown of Park Ridge, New Jersey.

Mark’s project took a lot of dedication and time. He and a group of volunteers from his troop distributed flyers around the community to explain his volunteer efforts. The flyer mentioned that he would go around house to house and collect toys that were left outside and also let his neighbors know that there would be collection boxes in the town library and local church. 

Additionally, Mark raised awareness by placing flyers outside of several restaurants, speaking at church masses and putting a notice in the church bulletin. Once all of the toys from his neighbors were collected, Mark and his troop volunteers took it one step further by getting permission to collect toy donations outside of some local businesses.

Over two days, close to 1,000 toys were cleaned, organized and inspected to be sent off to a recipient organization in Newark, NJ where they will be ‘reloved ‘and reused for the holidays.

Way to go, Mark! Your efforts are making a big difference!
