Toy Drive

Chet Buchanan has spent over 21 years during the holiday season gathering donations for Las Vegas families in need...not to mention, doing it from high atop a 30-foot scaffold! Toy Drive 2019 set record breaking numbers with 41 Coca Cola Trucks full of Toys, 9540 bikes donated and $603,320 in cash and gift cards (ALL NEW records). We could not have done it without our listeners and the Las Vegas community . Be sure to check out this page for the news, videos and more to "Feel The Tingle."
