Toy Drive Day 7: Why Every Little Thing Counts

One bike, one toy, one gift card happens one person at a time

December 5, 2018
98.5 KLUC Toy Drive

There’s no shortage of memorable moments—such as vow renewals or kissable Backstreet Boys—at the 20th annual KLUC Toy Drive presented by Venetian Resort and Sands Cares

But in between the headline-grabbing stunts and celebrity appearances, the families and businesses that make up the Las Vegas community are making the biggest difference.

Day 7 of Toy Drive saw host Chet Buchanan and crew shut down Coca Cola Truck No. 13 as more donors stepped up with bags of toys for HELP of Southern Nevada. Meanwhile, the Tropical Smoothie Sea of Bikes has now amassed more than 2,300 bicycles on its way to a goal of 8,110.

That Buchanan is able to spread the credit around speaks to the power of Toy Drive and the unending generosity of Las Vegas.

Among those who donated on Wednesday: Helix Electric (25 bicycles), D for Dentist (46 bicycles), Service Team of Professionals (20 bicycles), and Guild Mortgage (36 bicycles, $350 and toys). Toy Drive even gained the support of Carmine’s NYC restaurant and Virgil’s Real Barbecue, as the two eateries swung through with food to keep Buchanan and the KLUC team energized heading into the final days.

Others who deserve special thanks include:

Malthouse Motorworks

Nellis Air Force Base 

Busby family 

Theresa and Chuck 

Renee and family 

Christen and son Luke
