LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A staple in the Las Vegas Valley when it comes to holiday toy drives is back again in 2017.

The 19th annual KLUC Toy Drive with Chet Buchanan officially started on Thursday and will continue to Dec. 11.

The toy drive is headquartered at the NV Energy building located at 6226 West Sahara Avenue, just west of Jones Boulevard.

Thanks to the generosity of the city the annual event has been able to set records year after year. 

In 2016, 6,700 bikes and 30 semi trucks of toys filled the parking lot. The event also raised over $400,000.

Thursday morning saw 37 bikes with $5,715 donated within the first three hours of the toy drive.

This event is part of FOX5's Take 5 to Care campaign and KLUC's Chet Buchanan will be on location 24-hours a day taking donations until the conclusion of the toy drive.

More information about the drive can be found here.
