Large toy distribution taking place this week

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- It's distribution time for the KLUC Chet Buchanan and the Morning Zoo Toy Drive.

All the toys, bikes and gift cards collected will be given out to 3,000 needy families in the Valley over the next several days.

"There will not be a toy left in this building or even a bike."

Which is hard to believe, when you take look around the HELP of Southern Nevada toy store, but it shows how many kids need help this holiday.

After a record toy drive through KLUC, 13,000 kids in the Valley will now have something under the Christmas tree.

3,300 bikes were donated during the drive this year. And one by one, those bikes left the building Tuesday, along with smiling parents.

It's exciting and a relief for 3,000 families who will make their way through the doors, knowing their little ones won't go without.

It's important to note: Please don't go down to HELP of Southern Nevada to pick up toys if you're not registered to do so.

All families taking part were pre-qualified and that qualification period has ended.
