By  | 

RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - 1-800-GOT-JUNK? needs your help to give back to the community as much as possible. This year, the company plans to donate every toy it can to Toys for Tots.

As a thank-you for helping make it a wonderful season for our community's children, the company is offering a discount of up to $50 off your next appointment. To earn this offer, all it needs are toys! Take as many as you can to 1430 Greg Street, Suite 511, Sparks by December 20 to receive $25 off anything less than a half truck or $50 off anything over a half truck.


For the seventh year in a row, Dolan Auto Group has partnered with Toys for Tots to host an annual toy drive. The Dolan family invites all local residents and businesses to donate an unwrapped toy at any of their dealerships through Dec. 15.

“We are honored to be joining Toys for Tots in this effort to give back to families in need in our area,” said Ryan Dolan, CEO of Dolan Auto Group. “It’s humbling to see our community come together each year to make sure every child has the opportunity to experience the joy of opening a gift.”

Toys for Tots and the Dolan Auto Group help ensure children in the Northern Nevada community have toys to open Christmas morning. The group requests no stuffed animals, clothing or guns that look real.

Donations can be made at any of the Dolan Auto Group dealerships including Dolan Toyota, Dolan Lexus and Dolan Mazda-Kia.


Giving Tuesday may be over, but the chance to help out your local community continues into December at Nevada Standard Management Company properties. This holiday season, the property management group has partnered with Toys for Tots to collect toys at its Reno and Las Vegas locations.

“Last year, over 10,000 kids in the Reno area alone were given the gift of hope through Toys for Tots,” said Steven Cohen, President of Standard Management Company. “Our properties participate because our staff and residents agree no child should go without a gift during the holiday season.”

The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program has been bringing Christmas cheer to needy children since 1947. Collection boxes are placed throughout a community and residents are asked to donate new, unwrapped toys, which would be suitable for children 12 and under. All toys collected in a local community stay in that local community.

“If a toy is collected at one of our Las Vegas or Henderson properties, it will help a Clark County child. If it is collected at a Reno or Sparks property, it will help a Washoe County child,” said Tony Kuper, Director of Residential Operations. “This is our way of helping our neighbors in the communities directly adjacent to our properties.”

Residents and the public alike are invited to donate to the Toys for Tots program at Nevada Standard Management Company locations. Donation boxes are located inside the front offices of all Reno properties (listed below). Donations will be accepted until December 15.
