LAS VEGAS – The Greater Las Vegas Association of REALTORS (GLVAR) is sponsoring the 20th annual 98.5 KLUC Chet Buchanan Show Toy Drive and helping to make sure children in need are taken care of this Christmas.
GLVAR will be represented at the NV Energy headquarters, 6226 W. Sahara Avenue, on Thursday, Nov. 29, when Chet Buchanan ascends a 30-foot scaffold where he’ll be living until Dec. 10.
GLVAR President Chris Bishop encouraged all members of the association and the public to join them in donating new and unwrapped children’s toys and bikes, as well as cash and gift cards, to support the local radio station’s annual efforts to give local children in need a happier holiday season.
Last year, the 98.5 KLUC Chet Buchanan Show Toy Drive collected a total of 8,109 bikes, 32 trucks full of toys and $455,550 in cash and gift cards. KLUC partners with local nonprofit HELP of Southern Nevada to coordinate and distribute the donations. In addition to serving thousands of its own clients, HELP of Southern Nevada distributes toys and bikes to many other local charities that serve families in need. Last year, nearly 70 charities and local families benefited from the toy drive and HELP of Southern Nevada.
