Second Chance Toys of NYC Launches Holiday Toy Drive

Second Chance Toys is bringing the joy of the holidays to over 1,000 homeless children with its first Thanksgiving toy drive on New York’s Upper East Side.  Proceeds will be donated to Homes for the Homeless serving over 500 homeless families each day at four locations throughout the city.  Homes for the Homeless is the nation's largest provider of residential, education and employment training centers.  Jocelyn Goldberg, 13-year old behind Second Chance Toys of NYC, recruited classmates from her school and their families to run drives at each of their own apartment buildings in the neighborhood.  Jocelyn says, “ I am thrilled to bring cheer to less privileged families and to do something special that will put the “giving” back into Thanksgiving.  I know plastic toys eventually find their way into landfills.  Recycling is good for the environment and it helps preserve our planet.”  To find a new home for your gently used plastic toys, contact Jocelyn at
