MIDLAND - You may notice a growing addition to our news set as the holidays get closer.

The NewsWest 9/Salvation Army Toy Drive kicked off on Saturday.

And as has become a tradition here, it was a motorcycle ride on Saturday morning that got us started.

More than 50 riders gathered at Midland Power Sports on Saturday morning.

They enjoyed a hot breakfast provided by the T-Twister's then saddled up and headed to our studio.

"I've been doing this for 20 some years, bringing presents to these toy runs. It means a lot to the kids, instead of having one present if any, at least they'll have a couple more," Tom Jones, who rode in from San Angelo, said.

NewsWest 9 would like to thank them for coming out on Saturday.

If you'd like to be a part of the toy drive just drop off a new unwrapped toy at any Midland or Odessa Fire Station, or you can bring it out to the NewsWest 9 studios.
