Every year, the Nye Auto group holds a charity toy drive to help local families in need.

Join Big Frog 104 at Nye Auto in Oneida Saturday December 3, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. for the annual 'Share a Caring Christmas' charity drive.

You can bring new or gently used unwrapped toys that will be collected and handed out to local families who need a little extra help this holiday season.

The event includes a full lineup of entertainment including:

  • Musical selections performed by area school bands
  • Longtime supporter of the event Fritz's Polka Band
  • Light refreshments
  • A visit from Santa and maybe even Mrs. Claus!

New this year is the addition of the 'Share the Warmth' coat drive so bring your new or gently used coats too!

All are welcome to attend and are encouraged to bring any new or gently used unwrapped toys or coats.

Anyone interested in donating prior to the event can bring them to NYE Ford any time during regular business hours now through December 3rd.

NYE Automotive is located at 1441 Genesee St. in Oneida and open Mondays through Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Fridays from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Any local group or organization who wishes to help the effort by collecting toys are encouraged to do so, and anyone wishing to volunteer to help at the event should contact Terri Wimmer at 363-1000 x4256 or Kelly Karram at 725-8420.
