The Howard Hughes Corp., developer of Summerlin, is participating again in a special toy drive to brighten the holidays for children in Southern Nevada.
According to Tom Warden, senior vice president of community and government relations for Summerlin, the community is accepting new, unwrapped toys at Downtown Summerlin for the Joys of Christmas, the fifth annual toy drive organized by Clark County Commissioner Lawrence Weekly for the children of the Department of Family Services who are in foster care.
“Our community’s response to this effort is historically strong, and we expect this year to be no different,” Warden said. “We are proud and honored to support Commissioner Weekly’s initiative to ensure that every child in Southern Nevada has a gift this holiday season. Most importantly, we invite everyone to join us. It takes an entire community to make a difference for these kids.”
Toys must be unwrapped and dropped off by the end of day on Dec. 14. Toy drop-off locations are the following:
■ Downtown Summerlin Concierge, in the breezeway of One Summerlin; 702-832-1055; open daily from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.

“Thanks to the generosity of Southern Nevada, and in particular, The Howard Hughes Corp. and Summerlin for their ongoing support, we are able to give our kids a happy holiday,” he said. “Donating a toy is a small gesture that always puts a big smile on the faces of those who receive it. We encourage everyone in Summerlin to join us this year in making the holidays a little brighter for others in our community.”
