Dayton Eagles help fire victims and more

by Jennifer Sierra

Over the weekend, the Dayton Eagles helped victims of last week’s fire on Ervin Terrace by having a couple of fundraisers. They opened their doors to the public and raised money and accepted donations of housewares and clothing for the McGlothin Family. The Eagles are continuing to take donations for this family and others on Ervin Terrace that had damage to their property form this event. If you or anyone you know has extra household items or cash, please drop them off at the Eagles or contact Ron Woods at 859-414-2548.  Ron Woods, from the Dayton Eagles said “Our local government (Councilman, Ben Baker) worked with us (Dayton Eagles) who in turned call on you (the Bellevue Dayton Sun),  all for the greater good of one of our neighbors in their time of need.  This is how our town used to be and we really need to get back to that. People helping People is the Eagles’ motto.”

Here are some specifics on what is needed: Mariah is size 8 and she is 8 years old. Becky is 11 and she is size 16. They are in need of bedding twin, full and queen. They need furniture, toiletries, movies/DVDs and toys for the girls. Please remember, they lost everything just after Christmas.

The Dayton Eagles help our community in many ways. They recently raised money for new warm-up uniforms for the Dayton Youth League. The money they raised helped kids pay for the uniforms and shoes.  The Youth League’s season is not going so well for them and they could use supporters to come out to the games to support them and cheer them on. If you are not already a member of this wonderful community group, please consider joining.

Thanks to all that donated their time, money and items.
