CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - This is the start of our annual 5 days of giving and sharing.

Starting Monday, Cleveland 19 will team up with Marc’s stores to collect donations for the Salvation Army, Volunteers of America and the Cleveland Food Bank.

Swenson’s also participated giving out gold bullion’s for burgers for those who donate.

Major Tom Applin with the Salvations Army says they are behind in toy donations,

“We need toys lots of toys 4500 kids we are going to serve this year and i want to give them lots of toys.”

Volunteers of America collects lightly used or new coats for veterans, Becky Carlino-Madigan says the cold weather came too fast.

“You think of a day like today and someone walking around without a jacket and they are homeless they need the coats.”
