Central Ohio groups offering aid to Dayton for relief

After the Dayton and surrounding areas were hit with tornadoes and strong storms, many in central Ohio are stepping up to help those in need.

Ryan Fogelman, co-founder of the community workspace CO-Hatch, says he saw a need and immediately knew he needed to help.

“They have to boil the water and I think was really impressed upon on us the fact that they needed supplies right away,” Fogleman said.

The company has launched a supply drive at their five central Ohio locations.

“We are just asking for the basics, you know, toothpaste, soap, whatever people need to clean up," he said.

Rock City Church is also getting involved by sending volunteers. No stranger to relief efforts, Outreach Director Nate Eckhart with Rock City says the church is welcoming volunteers over 14 years old for to assist.

“It’s open to anybody who would like to volunteer,” Eckhart said. “Whether it’s for a whole day or half a day to just help with relief efforts.”
