Second Chance Toys was founded to rescue and reuse plastic toys for children in need by donating them to community organizations. By keeping non-biodegradable plastic out of landfills, Second Chance Toys helps the environment at the same time.

Twice yearly (during the holiday season and around Earth Day), unwanted plastic toys are rescued and donated to organizations that care for children in need. The toys can enhance a child's development by helping promote socialization, creativity, emotional security, motor skills, and learning.

donateNYC Partner Fact: Second Chance Toys received 9,123 toys in 2017, benefiting children and keeping 36,492 pounds of plastic from landfills.
