LIMA — The red kettle season has almost come to an end, and The Lima Salvation Army is seeking help to reach its fundraising goal for the season.

With just six days remaining in the bell ringing season, they are still $25,000 shy of their $120,000 goal to help the Lima and Allen County areas for 2019.

The Salvation Army is seeking volunteer bell ringers for designated local businesses around the community between the hours of 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. They are willing to accept anyone who can work an entire shift or just a portion.

If you are unable to volunteer your time, they also suggest making donations, either to the kettles around the community or as a personal donation to the office at 614 E. Market St in Lima.
