The Moms: ‘Second Chance Toys’ recycles toys for children in need

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Starting in November the MOMS will be joining hands with a charitable organization to help children across the country. Second Chance Toys (SCT) keeps plastic toys out of landfills by donating them to children in need. To date SCT has delivered 220 thousand gently loved toys to deserving kids. And they have created hours and hours of teachable moments with special curriculum designed to instill the important life lessons about giving back and saving the earth. SCT currently has requests for more than 270,000 toys for children. And they need  help. So the MOMS have decided to support them by incorporating toy collections into some of their Mamarazzi events. Their own children will be on hand to help with the collection – in fact they have been named the Child Ambassadors of the charity!

Ways to get involved:

o   Make a monetary contribution

o   Hold your own toy collection

o   Donate your toys

o   Help spread the word so more people donate their toys
