Second Chance Toys focuses on two of our most precious resources - our children and the environment - by promoting collections of gently-used plastic toys and matching them with local organizations that care for children in need.

Thousands of pounds of plastic toys are kept out of the waste stream every year and are instead helping children with socialization, creativity, fine motor skills, learning and having fun!

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