Santa is a really busy guy this time of year. When he's not supervising elves, he's talking to kids about their Christmas wishes and dreams. We are so lucky that Santa takes time out of his busy schedule to come hang out with us at the 911 Gives Hope charity to present the 8th annual 911 Gives Hope for the Holidays Toy Drive presented by Henderson Chevrolet, Buick, GMC. If you want to see the Big Guy, he will be at the the Wal-Mart on Burkhardt Rd. from 11-5 PM Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to take free photos with good boys and girls! While you are here, teach your kids about giving by donating a new, unwrapped toy to the local children who are spending the holidays in the hospital.

Santa's Hours

  • Friday: 11-5 PM
  • Saturday: 11-5 PM
  • Sunday: 11-5 PM


For the past nine 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. Vincent 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.
