For the past seven years, we have successfully filled a 53-foot trailer with toys that were distributed to the children’s wards at local hospitals. This year, all five radio stations will again partner together for a mass broadcast “radiothon” to urge the public to donate toys, clothing, gift certificates and more to the Children’s Wards at Deaconess Riley's Children's Hospital, St. Mary's Hospital For Women and Children, Methodist Children's Hospital, Evansville Psychiatric Children’s Center, ECHO Community Healthcare, and The Ronald McDonald House.

Local fire departments, police departments, sheriff’s departments and AMR will be in attendance all weekend in an effort to fill another 53-foot trailer. Santa will also be on hand and available for pictures throughout the weekend.

The toys that are collected will be sorted and delivered to the local hospitals just in time for Christmas.
