Angels of America's FallenA local military charity that funds extracurricular activities for the children of fallen troops and first responders could win a Toyota Tundra today — but your help is needed.

Angels of America’s Fallen is one of five nonprofits represented on Toyota’s voting page today. The two that receive the most votes before 9:59 p.m. Mountain Time tonight will each receive a truck.

If Angels wins, it will use the truck to deliver donated goods, like musical instruments and sports equipment, to the children it assists. It will also use the truck to transport supplies like tents, boxes, coolers, cases of water and signs to fundraising events, according to a press release from the charity.
