 In Press Releases

United Coin Machine Company (UCMC), one of Nevada’s largest slot route operators and manufacturer of Gamblers Bonus, the state’s most popular slot club, will donate 100-plus bicycles to the 2011 Toys for Tots charity drive. The company invited its 600-plus employees to voluntarily contribute to the annual toy drive.  The company then matched every dollar contributed by employees to purchase as many bicycles as possible.

“We have a great group of employees who have always expressed strong interest in giving back to the community,” stated Steve Arntzen, CEO and president of UCMC. “When we learned about the annual toy drive, it was an easy decision for us. The holiday season is a time to be reminded what we are thankful for and to give back to those in need. We are overwhelmed with the response our employees have given us and are delighted to support their commitment with a matching donation.”

The Marine Corps Reserves has been collecting toys for low-income families since 1947, and each year, Toys for Tots makes a different in the lives of children of all ages. The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December and distribute the toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community.

According to Arntzen, “the holidays are about children. Seeing a smile on a child’s face when they receive something special is a feeling that can’t be replaced. Helping to make the holidays brighter for kids in our community warms our hearts and reminds us what the holidays are all about.”

UCMC will assist Toys for Tots with loading the 100-plus bikes at 3pm on Tuesday, Dec. 13 at Walmart at 600 S. Eastern Ave. Photo and interview opportunities are available. If interested in covering, please contact Melissa Warren 702-528-6016 or mwarren@ffwpr.com.
