This upcoming Tuesday, December 18, NY Giants fullback Henry Hynoski, who has teamed up with Second Chance Toys and Kidville, will be at PS 142 in New York City handing out toys to less fortunate kids, many who were hard hit by hurricane Sandy.
Hynoski will talk with the kids, give them some inspiring words, and leave them with a toy to help put a smile on their face.
Kidville has multiple NYC and NJ locations where families can become members, enroll in classes, host birthday parties and much more. Second Chance Toys, an organization that collects gently used plastic toys for kids, has a vision of saving the landfills of these toys, so it can become someone else treasure. They believe that kids learn, grow, and thrive from toys. Why take away the opportunity to enrich the less fortunate who can’t afford toys.
Right now, December 14‐17 2012, Second Chance Toys is holding a toy drive to collect gently used plastic toys at multiple Kidville locations in NYC and NJ. The participation locations include Upper East Side Kidville, Upper West Side Kidville, Tribeca Kidville, Union Square Kidville, Park Slope Kidville, Carroll Gardens/Cobble Hill Kidville, and Hoboken Kidville.
Hynoski will use these toys in his visit at PS 142 to help these kids get into the holiday spirit, while they get a chance to meet a Super Bowl winning champion of their hometown NY Giants.
The toys should be in working condition and gently used. If the toy needs batteries to operate, please make sure it comes with working batteries.
