Since 2008, Nathaniel’s Hope has sponsored a pop-up Christmas Toy Shop in December to assist families and kids with special needs throughout our community. An empty storefront is converted to a holiday store and shelves are loaded, stocked, and ready for parents to shop for free toys and gifts for their VIP kids.  

For the second year, RNO has chosen to sponsor a toy drive to help support this wonderful organization which gives VIP special needs families a joyful Christmas for their kids. 

“Our team is happy to sponsor this toy drive and hope our collective efforts can positively impact VIP families and their kids throughout Central Florida,” said RNO GM Jeff Husby. “We invite all our customers, friends, vendors and colleagues to join us in this important community effort and hope you will participate.” 

By the way, Nathaniel’s Hope is a 501c3 established in honor of Nathaniel Timothy Kuck, son of Regal Boats VP Tim Kuck and his wife Marie. Nathaniel passed away when he was just four-and-a-half years old. RNO is especially happy to partner in this effort and support the Kuck family who have done so much to impact the special needs community.
