MIDLAND- Big bikes and big hearts were out this morning to help Newswest 9 and the Salvation Army kick start the annual toy drive.

"By kicking off with this toy drive it lets us know it's going to be another great Christmas, where we get to help a lot of folks, and that's what we enjoy doing," said Sgt. Jay Ward of the Odessa Salvation Army.

Each year donations fill up our studios and on Saturday morning Newswest 9 Anchor Crystal Crews, Chief Meteorologist Tom Tefertiller, and Meteorologist Darrell Ward welcomed hundreds of bikers baring toys Saturday morning.

"Smiling faces the giggling the laughing and all that, just gives you a great peace in your heart to know you can help people especially this time of year," said Sgt. Michael Barnhouse of the Midland Salvation Army, "It just helps us to serve those families, and individuals that come to us at Christmas. It's really hard to put into words how much it means to us."

If you would like to donate toys you can bring them to the Newswest 9 Studio or drop new unwrapped toys to any fire station in Midland or Odessa.
