WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) – The Miami Valley continued its show of support for those who have been impacted by hurricanes.

Southview Medical Center hosted a community donation drive for Hurricane Irma relief from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 23.

Kelly Fackel, Vice President of Development for Kettering Health Network, said the community has displayed an outpouring of support.

“Our community response has been amazing,” said Fackel. “We are getting so many donations, drop offs all week long.”

Fackel said people have donated cleaning supplies, diapers, hygiene products, paper towels, toilet paper and bottled water. She said people need these items, but might not necessarily have access to them in a storm situation.

“It’s really rewarding to be able to help people who really are in need,” said Fackel.

Fackel said the items will be delivered to Sebring, Florida, an area devastated by Hurricane Irma.
