How to Donate Toys in New Jersey

by Brandi Palkoner
Gently used toys can be donated to needy children through local New Jersey charities.

Toys provide children hours of imaginative fun and entertainment. If you have a house full of toys, it can be hard to imagine that there are children who have none. There are several organizations in the state of New Jersey that are dedicated to providing toys to children in need. If you have more toys than your kids know what to do with or even want to purchase new toys for needy children, consider donating to a local charity so other children may share the joy.

Drop off gently used toys at a Second Chance location near you. Drop-off centers are located in Scotch Plains, Westfield, Monmouth Junction and Mountainside. Used plastic and operational electronic toys are accepted during the months of April, November and December.

Visit the Vietnam Veterans of America website to find a local chapter accepting toy donations for resale in the VVA thrift shops. There are donation centers located in cities throughout New Jersey, including Bordentown, Bayonne, New Brunswick, Elizabeth, Wildwood and more.

Donate used children’s books in good condition to local hospitals, doctors and dentists through the Reach Out and Read program.

Call to arrange a pick up or drop off.

Access the Donation Town website to request a pickup of donated items, including used toys and stuffed animals. Enter your zip code and schedule a pickup online. Toys will be disbursed to local charities who are currently accepting used toy donations.

Visit the Child’s Play website to donate new toys to patients at the Children’s Hospital of Newark and the Children's Specialized Hospital of New Jersey. Select the hospital from the interactive map.
