How to Volunteer & Make Donations to Help Tornado Victims
Our hearts are with those affected by the tornadoes Monday night. The American Red Cross is responding to Dayton and surrounding communities devastated after Monday night's tornadoes, along with other organizations like The Dayton Foodbank. The National Weather Service has confirmed two of the tornadoes that touched down in Beavercreek and Trotwood were EF3. The destructive storms have impacted communities in and around Dayton, Harrison and Butler Townships, Brookville, Trotwood, and Riverside. Many communities are without power, without water, and hundreds of homes have been found to have been impacted and suffered damage.
If you are looking for ways to help, consider:
