Giving in honor of his friend, Alex


Kyle with a bran new bike, one of the 700 toys he donated in Alex Munoz’s honor this year.

For the past four years, Kyle Evans has been collecting toys for Operation Sleighbells, helping to grant the holiday wishes of hundreds of area children. When he first started, the Oceanport teen used his bike to distribute flyers and collect toys throughout the neighborhood. (He was too young to drive.) Kyle had such a good experience, he sponsored another collection drive the following year, even after his family’s home was badly damaged by Superstorm Sandy. He continued collecting toys through a very busy senior year in high school and into college. But this year, Kyle’s collection took on a new meaning.
