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.

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.
