KGW's annual Great Toy Drive is here!

 

Yesterday afternoon, Nick took a gift and joined Trail Blazers mascot Blaze at the kick-off event at the Wells Fargo tower.

 

Toys are being collected at various Wells Fargo branches, Les Schwab tire centers, and Regence medical centers across Portland. KGW is also hosting Collection Events at sites around town. Click here for a full list.

 

The toys will be distributed to families in need with the help of nearly 100 local non-profits.

 

Thanks to the generous donations from people across Portland metro area every year, over 160 families were able to give their kids a meaningful Christmas last year.

 

Together, we can help make this Christmas special for even more kids.
