I've seen much evidence in my tenure as a Downey Daily photographer that the people of Downey are generous people: with their time, with their talents, and with their money.
This is one example of all three types of giving. The Downey Symphony Guild raised $15,000 for the Downey Symphonic Society, which handles the business end of the Downey Symphony. These two organizations are staffed with volunteers who give of their time and talents to raise funds and spend them wisely to bring Downey and the surrounding communities the beauty of classical music.
