Honda offers free oil change to toy donors

'Tis better to give than receive, but now customers can do both at Honda West, located at 7615 W. Sahara Ave.

Honda West is offering a free oil change and car wash in exchange for toy donations, now through Wednesday, to benefit the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.

"We're trying to collect toys for as many kids as possible in the Las Vegas Valley," said Shawn Cherry, express service manager and former Marine, who created the promotion. "Come in with a toy of any price and we'll get the customer in and out in 30 minutes with a car wash (and an oil change)."

Patrons can choose between immediate service and a voucher that can be used at a later date.

Currently, Cherry said he has collected about 150 toys, but is hoping for 500 by Christmas Eve. Call 367-1919 for more information.
