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.

"We were thrilled by the overwhelming response to the collection this year," stated Crystal Van Hoorebeke, who coordinates the collection. "After all these years, parents have come to expect this collection and save up their childrens' outgrown toys so that others can reap the benefits," she added.

Over the years, DASD has made quite an impact with the thousands of toys they have donated to help children and the environment. Second Chance Toys is so grateful for the continued participation and enthusiasm of DASD. Thank you everyone!
