"Donations kind of drop in the summertime, but that need just does not go away.  So you are out there trying to help people and the only way to do that is with funds. You have to have those funds to do what you want to do, to be able to help people.  We have summer day camp, there are other programs that we generally run as well.  So all of that money comes in and helps support those programs," said Paul Downing, Operations Coordinator at the Lima Salvation Army.

Downing says they are looking for some volunteers, either individuals, churches or organizations, that would like to help collect money at the donation locations Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. If you are looking to volunteer, call the Salvation Army at 419-224-9055 and dial extension 211.
