Mayor of Passaic Donates Second Chance Toys for Earth Week 2010
PassaicCity Hall was bustling with many youngsters and their parents on Earth Day for Mayor Blanco’s presentation of Second Chance Toys. The children’s eyes widened as Drew Trautman of 1-800-Got-Junk? arrived with a truck load of gently used plastic toys which were gathered from the NJ statewide collection of toys at Investors Savings Bank branches. Bronna Lipton of Second Chance Toys asked the children about the three Rs of the environment and they added their suggestions on how to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Miriam Gonzalez, of Human Services for the city of Passaic, coordinated the event in which Mayor Dr. Alex D. Blanco spoke to the children and parents and underscored the importance of recycling and how we must care for our Earth. The children got to pick out their toys and there was no doubt that both they and the earth were happier for it!!!
