Wrapping Up the Holidays Toy & Gift Drive

Community Event, Holiday

Whatever the weather, and sometimes it’s frightful, every year around the holidays the staff of KXXO Mixx 96.1 radio and a crew of intrepid volunteers spend a day out on the street collecting toys and cash for families in need of extra assistance. Broadcasting live from outside their studios at the corner of State and Washington streets in downtown Olympia, KXXO Mixx 96.1 FM is holding its “Wrapping up the Holidays” Toy & Fund Drive Friday, December 22 from 6 A.M. to 6 P.M. The station is stressing cash donations this year as O Bee Credit Union will match the first $2,500 received, with Captain Little matching the next $2000, Wembley Soccer Shop the next $500, and Lew Rents West matching the next $2000! (However, new, unwrapped gifts are always welcome.) For those unable to make the drive, secure online donations may be made anytime at KXXO Mixx 96.1 handles all of the administrative costs so that every dollar donated goes directly to gifts for the families served. Recipient groups are a part of “Holiday Connection,” a consortium of area non-profits. Information on volunteering or donating may be found at or by calling 360-943-9937.
