The Juice Standard Spreads Holiday Cheer with $2000 of Toys, Bikes and Gifts for the 21st Annual 98.5 KLUC Chet Buchanan Show Toy Drive

December 13, 2019 – Las Vegas  Nev. – The Juice Standard donated $2000.00 worth of assorted toys and bikes for children living in southern Nevada for the 21st Annual 98.5 KLUC Chet Buchanan Show Toy Drive. Prior to delivering the abundance of gifts, team members from the Juice Standard shopped together at Target for a variety of girls and boy themed presents.

“Its our favorite tradition.  Never lose your childish enthusiasm! We haven’t! Yesterday, we filled our hearts with love while filling our carts with toys at Target for the Chet Buchanan’s Show 98.5 KLUC Toy drive,” says Marcella Williams, Co-Founder of The Juice Standard.
 

Through an array of innovative, flavorful smoothie blends combined with a few drops of pizzazz, the Juice Standard has been setting the standard for healthy convenience in Las Vegas since its opening in March 2014. With several Las Vegas valley locations, the juice company is a favorite for locals looking for organic, raw pressed juices, biome bowls, salads, wraps and healthy snacks.

The 21st Annual 98.5 KLUC Chet Buchanan Show Toy Drive runs this year until 10a.m. on December 16. Donations are accepted 24 hours a day at the local headquarters of NV Energy location at 6226 West Sahara, 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. Last year, nearly 90 charities and the people they serve benefited from the toy drive.
