Thanks to the generosity of those within the community, the holidays will be brighter for deserving children in our area this year. The Nex-Tech Wireless annual toy drive has kicked off and will continue until the end of December. Toys are being collected at all Nex-Tech Wireless and Nex-Tech Wireless Authorized Agent locations throughout central and western Kansas. The Great Bend Nex-Tech location will be collecting toys for the local Toys for Tots. In the 2014 drive, over 500 toys were collected. Anyone is encouraged to donate a toy for the drive, regardless of your wireless provider. Making the holidays even brighter this year, anyone who donates a toy will be entered into a drawing for a $250 Visa Gift Card. Additionally, the winner can choose their favorite local charity to receive $250.00. The winner will be announced on January 8, 2016 and will then choose the local charity to receive $250 from Nex-Tech Wireless. To donate a new toy to help a child in this community, or for more information on Nex-Tech Wireless, stop by Nex-Tech located at 3700 10th St in Great Bend. For a complete list of locations visit www.nex-techwireless.com or call 877-621-2600. "The annual toy drive is a great way for Nex-Tech Wireless to support local organizations and children this holiday season," stated Jon Lightle, President and CEO for Nex-Tech Wireless."We are grateful for everyone that donates a toy this holiday season, and helping make the drive a success. It's an important time of year in our communities for everyone to be reminded of the opportunity to give back, and not just receive."
