What a difference a day makes! I am certain that much more information will be available by local and state offices today. While area businesses, nonprofits, individuals and many faith-based organizations are pitching in to help, it seems as if some of the largest efforts are by Red Cross, Matthew 25 and in the Clermont County area, the Boys & Girls Clubs.
I urge you to also consider the many area food pantries which will surely need extra
donations for the long haul. (Dollars stretch much farther than non-perishable
food products because of the purchase power of food banks.)
Thanks to so many of you for sharing ideas and
information, for donating time, energy and funds to help our neighbors get back
on their feet.
Here is more information compiled from various news
and community resources. I hope that you'll share it as necessary.
