Nearly one thousand toys were delivered to New Community Corp. programs throughout Newark including New Community Harmony House, family housing units, Youth Department, Community Hills Early Learning Center, and the Hispanic Development Corp. In just one hour, students from Evergreen and Brunner Schools in Scotch Plains, as well as Tamaques School in Westfield, collected hundreds of their “gently loved” toys. Toys were delivered to New Community Corp by 1-800-Got-Junk? franchisee owner, Drew Trautman, who volunteered his truck and manpower to make this delivery, of so many toys, a possibility. Hours later, these toys that could have been headed for the landfill, were enjoyed by children at New Community Harmony House.
