The start of fall means the beginning of one our favorite traditions at NewsWest 9, the annual NewsWest 9-Salvation Army Toy Drive.
On Monday morning, the Midland and Odessa Salvation Army picked up their red barrels and are in the process of distributing them throughout the area.
The famous red barrels were created and donated by the West Texas Drum Company.
You can donate a new, unwrapped toy wherever you see a red barrel or a NewsWest 9-Salvation Army Toy Drive poster.
The toy drive runs until December 12.
