GLVAR members will be assembling bikes Dec. 9 and donating them in person Dec. 10
LAS VEGAS – The Greater Las Vegas Association of REALTORS® (GLVAR) is preparing its biggest donation yet as a sponsor of the 21st annual 98.5 KLUC Chet Buchanan Show Toy Drive to help local children in need around the holidays.
On Dec. 9, starting at 10 a.m., GLVAR members will be meeting at the association’s building at 6360 S. Rainbow Blvd. to assemble bikes that will then be delivered and donated by GLVAR members at 7 a.m. on Dec. 10 at the NV Energy headquarters building on 6226 W. Sahara Avenue.
As part of its sponsorship last year, GLVAR President Janet Carpenter said GLVAR donated $5,000 to the toy drive. GLVAR has increased its support to $14,500 this year, including donating and assembling more than 90 bicycles, sponsoring a Giving Tree at the toy drive location that will include gift cards and other items and sponsoring a truck to transport donations.
GLVAR is encouraging 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 drive to give local children in need a happier holiday season.
The annual 98.5 KLUC Chet Buchanan Show Toy Drive runs this year from Dec. 5 to 16. Donations are accepted 24 hours a day at the local headquarters of NV Energy, as well as at various other locations in Southern Nevada. Each year, the toy drive collects thousands of bikes, dozens of trucks full of toys and hundreds of thousands of dollars 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 90 charities and the people they serve benefited from the toy drive. For more information, visit https://kluc.radio.com/blogs/the-chet-buchanan-show/2019-toy-drive-faq.
