Backstreet Boy Nick Carter helped the 20th annual KLUC Toy Drive presented by Venetian Resort and Sands Cares reach a major milestone in its fifth day, as he shut down Coca-Cola truck No. 11 following a busy morning of donations.

Businesses turned out early Monday to drop off gifts as 98.5 KLUC host Chet Buchanan broadcast “The Chet Buchanan Show” from his 30-foot platform in the NV Energy parking lot.

Among the first to donate Monday: Claggett & Sykes Law Firm, who dropped off 200 bikes.

Las Vegas representatives of Walgreens pharmacy store chain followed that up with a check for $93,180.34, driving the total amount of money collected for HELP of Southern Nevada past $182,000.

Two members of the cast of Spiegelworld’s Opium show also arrived with bags of donations.

Carter, who had been raising money in the “St. Nick Kissing Booth,” shut down the 11th truck with the help of donors from UNLV Athletics (including the Hey Red mascot), who had arrived just before 9 a.m. to deliver the “Toy Drive Trifecta” of toys, bicycles, and gift cards.
