For years, Q98.5 has teamed up with the Salvation Army for a day of giving and helping out less fortunate Stateline families.  Of course, the Salvation Army will take care of local distribution to area families that have registered with the Salvation Army.

Here's how you can help! Please bring out a new, unwrapped toy for a little girl and boy, and place it under our giant Christmas Tree. Last year, Q98.5 listeners businesses and friends brought by nearly 10,000 new toys for children and thousands of dollars of cash donations the Salvation Army kettle at Lou Bachrodt.

You should see how the toys stack up as Q98.5's Mark Charvat take you on a tour of toys
