Delaware Online: Give toys a second chance at Delaware Children’s Museum

On Saturday, Kohl’s and Second Chance Toys will hold a big drive at the Delaware Children’s Museum to gather gently used toys for the underprivileged. The drive is designed partly to celebrate Earth Day and keep the toys out of landfills.

The organizers hope to collect 5,000 toys for kids in need during the museum’s Family Fun Day. They will be picked up by 1-800 GOT JUNK? drivers, who are volunteering their time and trucks, to be delivered to Delaware and Philadelphia locations.
