Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) December 19, 2009
Once again XY7.com gave much needed bikes, toys and Christmas gifts to those less fortunate families with children in the Las Vegas Valley. A visit to the XY7 website indicated that with the cash and in kind offerings the total reached $23,840 which included toys, gift cards and bikes. For the last 12 years Kevin De Vincenzi and the staff and friends at XY7.com have assisted local Radio Morning Show great, Chet Buchanan from KLUC-98.5. The annual event netted $93,150 in giftcards, 1,525 bicycles and filled nearly 10 giant semi trucks for local children. The 98.5 KLUC Morning Zoo Toy Drive, which began in 1998, saw Buchanan living inside a tent, 24 hours per day, for 12 consecutive days.

“Next year is going to be even bigger”, said CEO De Vincenzi, "we launched a website to collect money from the community, business associates, and friends of XY7 to double what we normally give to the drive.” Last year the XY7 group donated a truck load of toys, gift cards and bikes totaling almost $25,000. The website http://www.xy7toydrive.com is the place to go to get involved next year again as well. The team is always in need of monetary contributions, shoppers, and assistance in the delivery process on the last day of the drive.
Marketing Director, Jon D. Fondy will continue to assist De Vincenzi in the coordination and PR of the annual project. “We will be making the donations of the gifts and such to support Help of Southern Nevada, who assists families and individuals throughout Southern Nevada to overcome barriers and attain self-sufficiency through direct services, training and referral to community resources”. Upon request tax deductible donor receipts will be issued by the charity.
