At KMTV 3 News Now, we believe every child should receive a gift for the holidays, and this year the need is even greater. That’s why we’re teaming up with The Salvation Army and our sponsor, Jensen Tire & Auto, for this year’s Angel Tree Toy Drive.
From now until Dec 11, we'll be collecting toys for area children and teens.
You can drop them off at one of 21 Jensen Tire & Auto locations around Omaha, Council Bluffs, Bellevue, Fremont, and Lincoln. See the map below for a location near you! Thank you for helping to make the holidays brighter for area children in need.
