NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

LP Field is hosting a toy drive to benefit the Salvation Army's Forgotten Angels program on Tuesday.

The event will be held beginning at 6 a.m. and continues through 7 p.m. at the eastside entrance between gates 1 and 2 located next to the Pro Shop.  

All of the toys received this year will help provide gifts to less fortunate children and elderly in the Middle Tennessee area.

The Salvation Army reported this year they received 10,000 applications for the Angel Tree program.

All of the toys raised at Tuesday's event will help provide gifts to the several hundred "angels" who will not be adopted off of area Angel Trees.

Last year's event collected 8,000 toys for the program.
