Walgreens donated more than $100,000 to the annual KLUC toy drive on Monday.

Every year, the local Walgreens locations partner with 98.5 KLUC to raise toys, cash and gift cards for kids in Southern Nevada.

Normally, they have 4 to 6 weeks to raise money for the toy drive. This year, they only had 2 weeks. Even so, they were able to raise $104,294.

98.5 KLUC and Chet Buchanan & the Morning Zoo are home to the World's LARGEST Single Location Toy Drive. Chet lives on top of a scaffold for 12 straight days, 24 hours a days, collecting toys, bikes, cash and gift cards for kids. All the donations go to the families at HELP of Southern Nevada.

The toy drive is accepting donations through Dec. 12.
