The Current: Fire, police, churches, businesses team up to collect toys for needy children

A fleet of trucks on April 12-13 will be parked throughout New Jersey so residents may donate the gently used plastic toys their children have outgrown.

The collection is a cooperative effort between 1-800-GOT-Junk and Second Chance Toys, a charity that collects, cleans and redistributes gently used plastic toys to children in need.

A local business is participating in the collection drive.

From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, April 13, a 1-800-GOT-Junk truck will be parked to collect toys at Doc’s Doc’s Furniture Mart, 881 Black Horse Pike, Pleasantville.

Doc’s Furniture joins other collection sites in Bellmar, Cherry Hill, Teaneck, and Princeton.

“What a great incentive to start your spring cleaning with an act of kindness that will not only help disadvantaged children but also protect the environment by keeping these toys out of landfills,” Drew Tautman of 1-800-Got-Junk said. “We are thrilled to be part of this initiative and we hope a lot of residents take advantage and donate their toys.”
