Second Chance Toys and 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Spread Joy at Paulsboro Head Start

Paulsboro Head Start Family Advocate Aja Alston and student Asianay Bryant share the excitement of the toy distribution while other children check out the toys.      

Second Chance Toys and 1-800-Got-Junk? partnered to make children at Gateway Community Action Partnership's Paulsboro Head Start center very happy one Saturday morning in April.

Second Chance Toys, which rescues and recycles gently used plastic toys and donates them to children in need, donated a truckload of toys to Gateway's Paulsboro Head Start on April 21. 1-800-Got-Junk?, the world's largest junk removal services, donated their services by delivering the toys. From there, Gateway staff distributed the toys to our Paulsboro Head Start children, who were thrilled to start playing with the toys.

This is the second consecutive year Second Chance Toys and 1-800-Got-Junk? partnered to provide toys for our Paulsboro Head Start center. "Second Chance Toys has helped us to encourage volunteerism, engage families in their child's Head Start experience, and put a smile on a child's face," said Bonnie Eggenburg, Gateway's Head Start Director
