Give a toy, get a warm fuzzy feeling. Or else.

The music KLUC 98.5-FM might not be up your alley—unless your alley is paved with Christina Aguilera, 50 Cent and Beyonce—but every year during the holidays, the station’s morning DJ team joins up with HELP of Southern Nevada for its annual Chet Buchanan & The Morning Zoo Toy Drive. For the ninth year, Buchanan will live atop a 30-foot scaffolding for the duration of the drive, from Nov. 29 to Dec. 10, this time in the parking lot of Nevada Power’s main office on West Sahara Avenue between Jones Boulevard and Torrey Pines Drive.

Last year, the drive collected enough toys to fill 14 tractor-trailers. Those donations were then distributed to needy children via more than 30 Southern Nevada charities.

If you want to help, drop off new, unused and unwrapped toys to the KLUC set-up at the aforementioned Nevada Power parking lot anytime during the toy drive. When you’re buying yourself a new game for your Xbox, think about the kids that have nothing and pick ‘em up something nice, too, you greedy bastards.
