Salvation Army gets generous donation from GM Lordstown workers

Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - The Salvation Army has received their largest single donation so far this year.

The contribution comes from the paint shop employees of the GM Lordstown complex and several local United Auto Workers.

The crews worked several weeks to collect toys and raise $4,700 to benefit area children.

"The enthusiasm for this seems to be just overwhelming. But I guess anytime there are children in need it just opens up your heart and your wallet to be able to make something like this happen," said Glenn Johnson, President UAW Local 1112.

In all, the Salvation Army predicts more than 2,000 area children will receive gifts this year thanks to donations.
