The Lash LaRue Toy Drive is a non-profit organization that collects and delivers toys for the children of the Pine Ridge Indian reservation. All donations are tax deductible.
The toy drive started with Lash, a friend, and a small pick up truck. "We thought that was the coolest thing ever," Lash said about the first year. But little did he realize, once you're in, you're in. When asked "Are you doing it again next year," he could only think, "How could I not?"
This brings us to today. Five years later, 18 ft moving trucks, 5-6 annual events, radio appearances, 2 CD's, and hundreds of children with a brighter Christmas later, the Lash LaRue Toy drive is one of Omaha's most popular charities.
Friends, families, and strangers eyes light up, swell up, and tear up at the images and stories of the reservation and the toy delivery. Musicians, venues, motorcycle clubs, media members, line up and beg to be part of the events.
If you'd like to help, contact us or simply bring a toy to a drop location or event, buy a CD, send a monetary donation, or just spread the word!
