On Monday night, many of us were clustered with our families in our basements listening to the sirens and the storm. Many of us felt fear… for ourselves, for our friends, for our families. In the early morning hours, as the sun rose, fear gave way to reality. Gratitude for what could have been worse, but also sadness for what the storm leveled in its path. As with all natural disasters, there is an immediate need for many to meet basic needs. Resources can be limited and hard to find, so our team plans to try to keep this post as up to date as possible over the next few days to help our community find the help and support they need.
These days will not be without their hardship and their emotions, but one thing we know for certain. Nothing compares to the Dayton community and the last 24 hours of rallying support and friendship have shown that in spades.

One of the Dayton Mom’s Blog mamas is dedicating her time and the resources from her small business to create shirts that can be purchased in support of the disaster relief efforts happening in Dayton. Shirts cost $15 and 100% of proceeds will be donated to local relief efforts.
Water & Ice
Some boil advisories are beginning to lift, but water remains a significant need in the area.
