Cox Media Group Ohio has partnered with The Dayton Foodbank to immediately distribute food in the hardest-hit communities impacted by the tornado destruction.

After 15 tornadoes swept through the Miami Valley on Memorial Day, countless people have step forward and offered their services to help.

In an effort to assess what services are being offered and what services are needed, the United Way created a form for people to register their services.

“We have hundreds of individuals, business, and groups reach out to us over the last few weeks asking how they can help,” said Tom Maultsby, president and CEO of the United Way of the Greater Dayton Area. “We have connected thousands of volunteers to needs in the community over the last week and are still receiving offers of help.”
