Just hours after the death of Toledo Police Officer Anthony Dia, people were looking for ways to help.

There are many fundraisers in the works, from t-shirts to food, even flags.

Joe Stoll, owner of Toledo Flags in Point Place, said the phone was ringing off the hook Monday morning, with people wanting a flag with the thin blue line honoring police officers.

Stoll says people were coming from all across the area to buy the flags as a way to show support for Toledo Police and other officers putting their lives on the line every day.

Stoll said he does not want to profit off charity, so he is working on a way to use the money from the police flag sales to help local police.
