Second Chance Toys of PA Announces Expanded Community Partnerships to Support Upcoming Earth Week Toy Donations

Picture1_2When local high school students, Kyle and Cara Scott, started Second Chance Toys of PA last summer, they knew it was a great idea but did not anticipate how quickly the community would pitch in. 

Recently, an employee at Kulicke & Soffa read about Second Chance Toys of PA and decided to engage her fellow employees to help.  She immediately presented this concept to the employee activities committee at the Fort Washington, PA-based Company of 2,700 worldwide employees and it was unanimously agreed that participation in this drive was an excellent way for Kulicke & Soffa to help.  The company’s activities committee has already begun a campaign and has solicited its U.S. employees to collect gently used plastic toys that Kyle and Cara will be able to donate as part of the Earth Week toy donations they have planned for Second Chance Toys of PA.  The K&S U.S. employees committee believes, “An effort like this brings out the best in all of our employees and we are excited about the opportunity to make a real, positive difference for the children. It’s the right thing to do”.

Kyle and Cara decided that Earth Week (April 18-27) was a perfect event for Second Chance Toys of PA to highlight for its next round of toy donations.  “The purpose of Earth Week is to heighten awareness of environmental responsibility,” says Kyle Scott, a 16-year-old high school junior at George School, Newtown, PA).  “This is a great time to remind everyone to recycle and donate their gently used plastic toys to make lots of deserving children happy.” Kyle’s sister, Cara Scott, a 15-year old high school freshman also at George School agrees.  “We are helping the environment while making a lot of kids happy,” says Cara.  “We are going to provide great toys to literally hundreds of kids during Earth Week. That is something our whole community should feel good about.”
