The Salvation Army in Lima is active in a diverse array of programs and services to help our community, especially those facing varied types of hardship.

Every day, generous donors step forward to help us in our mission.  They donate money, gifts, and time.  We are truly and richly blessed by the response we receive from those who seek to help us 'do the most good' in our community every day.

While there is incredible generosity offered to The Salvation Army every day, there are always additional needs that will help us better serve the individuals and groups that seek our support and help.  In this section of the web site, we present an always-changing Wish List of items that we hope generous contributors will feel inspired to donate or contribute towards. If you're not able to donate, we appreciate your prayers for the fulfillment of our needs.

"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened."
(Matt. 7:7-8, NIV)

To make any material or financial contributions to help us with Our Wish List, please contact Tom Vernon, Operations Coordinator at 419-224-9055.  We greatly appreciate your support!
