Given the nature of plastic, toys often show little signs of wear. When these "good-as-new" toys are thrown out, they become waste in a landfill, take up a lot of space, and do not biodegrade. Hand in hand with this wastefulness is the fact that many children in the United States own few or no toys at all.
Second Chance Toys provides a waste-need solution to these problems. Twice yearly, unwanted plastic toys are rescued and donated to organizations that care for children in need. The toys can enhance a childs development by helping promote socialization, creativity, emotional security, motor skills, and learning.
Mission: To keep plastic toys our of the landfills by donating them to children in need.
