Realtors deliver food and water to tornado victims

Dayton REALTORS® Foundation Delivers Aid to Tornado Victims

In Opportunities, Projects by Bob Jones

The Dayton REALTORS® Foundation acted quickly on Tuesday, May 28, mobilizing staff and members to provide relief for the victims of the tornadoes that hit the Dayton area on Memorial Day.

Late on Monday, May 27, 14 tornadoes touched down in the Miami Valley, causing widespread damage and destruction to hundreds of homes and businesses. Residents of Celina, Trotwood, Brookville, Harrison Township, Clayton, Riverside, and Beavercreek were hit particularly hard. The following day Governor Mike DeWine declared a state of emergency for Montgomery, Greene, and Mercer counties.

Using funds from the Dayton REALTORS® Foundation, the leadership of Dayton REALTORS® quickly recruited volunteers to help deliver and unload pallets of water and non-perishable food (thank you to the Kunal Patel Group for the use of their moving truck).

The responders from Trotwood, Warren County and Wayne Township were on hand at Trotwood Fire Station 72 to accept needed items not only from us, but from the many other generous citizens from all around the area.

This swift work would not have been possible without the generous donations of members to the Dayton REALTORS® Foundation. Please click the orange "DONATE" button above so that we may continue to support these relief efforts.
