NY and NJ Kidville Locations Collect Toys

This holiday season Second Chance Toys was blessed to have 10 different Kidville locations collecting gently used plastic toys. In Manhattan, participating locations included the Upper East Side, Upper West Side, Midtown West, Union Square and FiDi. In the Bronx, the Riverdale location collected toys, In Brooklyn, they were collected at the Park Slope and Carroll Gardens locations, and in New Jersey, toys were collected in Montclair and Hoboken.

We are so grateful for the efforts of Kidville and for the impact they have had on hundreds of children in their local areas. They truly made a difference for children less fortunate. And for the children that donated their toys, there are invaluable life lessons too. According to Rammy Harwood, Co-Founder/President and CEO of Kidville, "Our collections teach selflessness, empathy and giving at an early age. By donating a once-loved toy of their own, children learn firsthand about the importance of giving and reuse," he continued.

What better way to instill and celebrate the true spirit of the holidays.

Pictured are some of the 300 toys that were picked up all over Manhattan by 1-800-GOT-JUNK? and delivered to Greater Harlem Healthy Start. The mothers were ecstatic. Thank you, Kidville!
