Do you remember when I told you recently that I was partnering with Old Spice and Second Chance Toys to help collect gently used, clean plastic toys for their HoliSPRAY Toy Donation Exchange? I was chosen to help collect toys that would be distributed locally through the nonprofit organization Second Chance Toys. This was a first-of-its-kind, phil-MAN-thropic holiday exchange by Old Spice and I was so excited to be a part of it.
Second Chance Toys is a non-profit organization that has been dedicated to keeping plastic toys out of landfills by donating them to children in need throughout local communities since 2006. I was thrilled when I heard that the donated toys were going to be given to kids right in our own community.
The toy exchange was held at my son’s dojo. They have lots of families in and out of there every day, so I figured that the toy drive would get more exposure if I held it there.
The drive was held at:
America’s Best Defense (ABD)
1470 New State Highway
Raynham, MA 02767
The folks at ABD let me leave the bin for the toy donations in their lobby, so it was easy to spot as soon as you walked in the door. For every family that donated, someone who was working at the counter helped to hand out a bottle of Old Spice’s new Re-fresh Body Spray (one per family) to them in exchange for their donation.
