AFAN’s Annual Holiday Toy Drive Kicks Off Today – Help spread holiday joy and put smiles on the faces of more than 150 local children affected by HIV/AIDS

LAS VEGAS (Nov. 3, 2014) – Help make this holiday season extra special for more than 150 children, ages newborn to 17, who are infected or affected by HIV/AIDS living in Southern Nevada by donating to AFAN’s annual Holiday Toy Drive starting now through Dec. 5.

Donate new, unwrapped toys to any of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf or Jamba Juice locations listed below, or drop them off at AFAN’s offices. In addition, Sprinkles Cupcakes at The LINQ will accept donations from Nov. 29 through Dec. 14 and will give one complimentary cupcake with the donation of every toy. Requests to adopt a child or family can be made by emailing, and AFAN will provide a personal wish list.

The toy drive culminates in a festive holiday party to benefit the children of families that access AFAN services throughout the year. For many of these children, this holiday party provides the only gifts they will receive during the holiday season. One hundred percent of funds raised for this event go toward purchasing toys and providing a carefree holiday experience for the kids that includes a photo with Santa, holiday games, craft-making with the elves, and an opulent spread of delicious holiday treats.
