A $250 check was presented this week to Major Doug McGuire of the East Liverpool Salvation Army by Mandy Haldiman, advertising consultant for The Review, which will be used to purchase food for community residents. The money was raised through a promotion designed by Haldiman in which local businesses paid $65 to be included in a newspaper ad for the downtown Christmas celebration, with $15 of each payment earmarked for the Salvation Army. Businesses involved included Outdoor Army Store, Robert A. Milner, attorney at law, Roe Carpet and Vinyl, Milligan Hardware, Doctors On Call, Tim Horton’s, Brookes Law Offices, Martin MacLean Altmeyer Funeral Homes, Heritage Thermal Services, Mason Color, Glenmoor American Legion Post 736, Chris Arnott Agency, St. Clair Avenue Storage Inc. and American Legion Post 374. East Liverpool City Hospital paid $40 as its contribution. (Photo by Jo Ann Bobby-Gilbert)
